A mother of 5 with 3 grandchildren, Mandy began writing service in 1994 for her dad at a small independent shop in Moorcroft, WY called Williams Auto Repair. Since that time she has also written service for Thunder Basin Ford in Gillette, WY and Spradley Barr Ford in Fort Collins, CO before coming to Platinum Garage in 2017.
Spending time with her family is at the top of what Mandy likes to do in her free time. When not with them, she can often be found on the banks of the Powder River with her fishing line in the water hoping to catch a record-breaking catfish or sturgeon. She also enjoys spending time in her garden, tending to her animals, and working in her yard.
When it comes to customer service, Mandy says “Communication and honesty are the two most important factors in providing superior customer service.”

Born and raised in Molalla, Oregon, 20 miles outside of Portland, Eric Hutchison comes to Platinum Garage with extensive experience in hybrid and electric vehicles as well as a vast knowledge of imports including Subaru, Audi, Volkswagen, Mini, BMW, Toyota, Honda, Hyundai, Kia, Volvo, and Fiat.
Eric loves to make everything go faster! When he’s not busy turning wrenches at the shop, Eric enjoys riding, fixing, and building motorcycles. On his bucket list is to race the Mint 400 on his dirt bike. He enjoys hunting and fishing and has a great love for animals, especially dogs. You will always find his four-legged best friend, a red healer named Luna, close by his side.
When it comes to repairing a vehicle, Eric states, “I take pride on every vehicle as if it were mine or my mother’s. When I repair a vehicle, my goal is it should look like it was never at the shop except it is fixed.” When speaking of customer service Eric states, “I think doing something that improves someone else’s life, little or huge, makes me the happiest. That’s why I enjoy being a technician. Someone can be in the dumps because their only lifeline, their vehicle, is broken. That can be fixed, and unfortunately sometimes other things can’t be. Mechanical things I can fix and help make someone’s day better.”
