Meet the Team
Even if you haven’t met the entire team in person, you can meet them virtually! Here are the people who help make Ervine’s Auto Repair & Grand Rapids Hybrid run smoothly.
Eric Carlson, co-owner of Ervine’s Auto Repair & Grand Rapids Hybrid, has been an ASE-Certified Master Technician L-1 Advanced Level, L-3 Hybrid Specialist for many years. He’s been married to Jamie for 31 years and has two daughters and four grandkids. When he’s not around vehicles or at the shop, he enjoys camping, bike rides, kayaking, reading, and flying. He dislikes bad drivers and people who litter. His favorite food is a nice cut of beef.
Jamie Carlson, co-owner of Ervine’s Auto Repair & Grand Rapids Hybrid, has been in the automotive industry for 40 years. Jamie has been married to Eric for 31 years. She has two daughters and four grandkids. When she’s not at the shop she enjoys camping, bike riding, throwing pottery, gardening, kayaking, paddle boarding, and laughing! Like Eric, she hates when people throw trash out their car windows. When asked about her favorite food she says “anything we have at family dinner, but it must include chaos and laughter.”
Megan Dineff, customer service and social media manager, has been at Ervine’s Auto Repair & Grand Rapids Hybrid for seven years. Megan has been married to Brian for 10 years and has two kids, one dog, one cat, one hamster, and one fish. When she’s not extolling the virtues of driving a Prius or helping customers, her hobbies include volunteering, camping, laughing, reading, and exercising. Hearing people chew drives her crazy and she loves spicy food.
Bruce Crittendon, ASE-Certified Master Technician L-1 Advanced Level (and in our opinion, one of the best in West Michigan), has been in the automotive business for 37 years and at Ervine’s Auto Repair for 10 years. Bruce has been married to Leslie for 27 years and has four boys, two dogs and one cat. His hobbies include bike riding, camping, kayaking, golfing, beer tasting, and brewing. He dislikes inconsiderate drivers and uncontrolled pets. Bruce loves a good deluxe mac ‘n’ cheese with bacon, veggies, and a ton of cheese.
Tom Hesselschwerts, ASE-Certified Master Technician L-1 Advanced Level, has been in the automotive business for 43 years and has been a great asset to the Ervine’s Auto Repair & Grand Rapids Hybrid team. Tom has been married to Karen for 39 years and they have four kids and a dog. He likes to do crossword puzzles, loves antiquing, and enjoys spending time with his family. His pet peeves are being asked one billion questions while he’s in the middle of something. We couldn’t get any of his other pet peeves because he was in the middle of something. :D
