Michael’s Auto Repair Journey
Michael started out working on jets in the United States Air Force. After he finished his service, he went to Franklin Institute and graduated at the top of his class, receiving the McTavish Award. Then, he was hired at Wellesley Volkswagen and worked there for 20 years as an automotive technician. Along the way, he went through all the schooling Volkswagen and Mazda had to offer and became a Registered Guild Master Technician with Volkswagen, as well as a Master Technician with Mazda. He also earned his ASE Master certification.
In 1998, Michael opened his own auto repair shop to gain independence and show his children not to fear failure… if he had failed. Over 20 years later, the McAlisters love their life in the shop.
