Mike describes himself as a jack of all trades, and his long and varied career reflects it. In addition to owning a Volvo salvage and replacement parts store for many years, among other things Mike was a fundraiser for the Tucson Symphony, managed a men’s chorus, and created one-of-a-kind, hand-painted Asian robes. Mike’s cheerful attitude lights up our shipping operation, which he runs with efficiency and aplomb.
Carol has more than 30 years of sales experience in automotive parts departments, with more than half of those at Jim Click Automotive in Tucson. She’s a whiz at programming TSTs for customers, assembles DIY kits, prepares compartment lock upgrades, coordinates teak mat and cutting board pick-ups, and keeps our back stock area and inventory shelves organized. All while maintaining a sense of humor and a smile! Carol is also our team’s source for fresh chicken eggs, from her lovingly raised hens.
Chief Morale Officer
Mickey provides comedy, cuddles, and stress relief to the Airstream Life Store team. He's often the first one to greet customers (and their dogs) when they visit our Tucson retail store.
When he isn't pulling the stuffing out of his toys or in the midst of "the zoomies," Mickey protects us from the USPS Guy, the vacuum, and anyone who arrives wearing big boots.
