Our dedicated commercial van team makes it easy to order, upfit and service your Sprinter or Metris, too.

From sales to service and parts, you’ll receive an unmatched level of customer service here. Our new dealership in Farmington is family-owned and operated, and we take pride in our ethics, and the way we’ve streamlined the buying process and offer the best experience you’ve ever had buying and owning a car.

    I am from Las Vegas, NE. I came to Utah in 2021. 

    I have worked in the automotive industry since 1994, after working as a haberdasher. 

    My favorite model is the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gull-Wing Coupe…The 300SL is easily the most iconic Mercedes ever made; Its striking design and gullwing doors really set it apart from other cars. Launched in 1954, it became the world’s fastest car, hitting speeds of 163 mph.

    My hobbies and passions include skiing, hiking, and driving fast cars.

    Hi, I am Andy! I was born in Missouri but live in Colorado most of my life. I moved to Colorado in 1998 before moving to Utah a few years ago in 2018. Before starting at Schomp in 2013 I ran a small restaurant in Buena Vista, Colorado. I started my automotive career with Schomp MINI because I owned one at that time and I was treated like royalty when I needed service for my vehicle, such a memorable experience! I’ve been in customer service for 22 years and Schomp’s Core Values are important to me both personally, and professionally. My favorite Mercedes-Benz model is the AMG® ONE – I’m a Formula 1 fan and that car was inspired by Mercedes-Benz’s recent success in F1 racing. Outside of work I enjoy getting out on my adventure motorcycle and exploring the UT backcountry. I also enjoy cooking and video games.

    Senior Client Advisor, Certified Mentor

    I grew up in the Bay area in California and I am a graduate from Boise State University with a degree in Education, Health, Psychology and Coaching. I learned to ski in Idaho and enjoy everything outdoors, photography and exploring new terrain. My motto, “I’ll try almost anything once”. Bungee jumping is not on my list. Having 4 older brothers I have a love of cars. I spend my time off work hiking the local trails with my husband Brian and our Border Doodle Skye…who is training me to feed her on time and play frisbee correctly. We moved to Utah in November of 2014 to be closer to our grandkids (and our kids I guess) and to get away from the freezing cold of Minnesota.

    I joined the automotive industry on Feb 14, 2001 and have LOVED it ever since. There just isn’t a more dynamic career that puts all my tools and experience to the test. I have a new story every day! My goal is to earn your business by providing an unparalleled purchase experience!
