Sarah is our ASE-Certified Operations Manager.  She grew up at AEI and has been an official team member since 2002.

After graduating from OSU with a B.A. in English, Sarah utilizes her knowledge of cars and her communication skills to help our customers get through complicated (and often stressful!) vehicle repairs.  She is also an award-winning contributing writer for MOTOR Magazine.

Sarah enjoys getting to know new customers and catching up with our "lifers" when they come in for maintenance.


Cherise has been with AEI for over a decade, wearing almost every hat!  As our HR and Marketing Director and "Work Mom," Cherise enjoys giving back to our wonderful customers and the rockstar AEI staff after a hard day's work.

Beyond AEI, Cherise and Walt spend every free moment with their eight children and their increasing number of grandchildren - the more the merrier!

The Hysell-Kennedy family is also very involved in Special Olympics and DSACO (Go Lauren!).
