Kevin Donohoe | Pacific Motor Service Monterey

Kevin Donohoe

Owner

Kevin has been in the automotive repair industry for over 40 years. He started working at the Arco gas station as a teen. He then opened his first shop after graduating from Dianza College in 1981. He has since owned a shop in Prunedale and purchased Pacific Motor Service in 1999. His personal mission is to serve the community by keeping their cars safe and reliable. Kevin’s hobbies consist of cooking for his friends and family and being grandfather to his two beautiful granddaughters. While he will likely never retire, Kevin would like to spend more time exploring the country in an RV with his lovely bride Sue Anne and his Saint Bernard Dakota.

The best part of Kevin’s day is working with the clients that come through the door and taking care of the people on the Pacific Motor Service team.

Beatrice Bird | Pacific Motor Service Monterey

Beatrice Bird

Assistant ETI Specialist (Education, Training and Information Specialist) and Assistant Service Advisor

Cars have always been a passion of mine; I remember being about 7 years old, watching rally races and dreaming that one day I would own a rally car of my own. It was a goal I kept throughout my teen years that inspired me to start my own dog sitting business when I was 17 years old. After a few years of saving, I had enough to buy my dream car, a 2006 Mitsubishi Evolution. It didn’t take long until I knew I wanted to start a career in the automotive industry and was drawn to become a service advisor at Pacific Motor Service. When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, cooking and riding motor cross bikes. I am in the process of getting my Evo ready for track days at Laguna Seca Raceway!
