Meet the Team - Trish Mayes

Trish Mayes has been part of the Tidewater Express team for the past 9 years, when Mike Pelfrey (our founder and all-around great guy!) purchased AutoCraft Collision Center in Virginia Beach, VA in 2011. Chances are if you have called AutoCraft on the phone, or stopped by the shop you have spoken with Trish, she is our first line of greetings and salutations. Trish has many years experience in the automotive industry, and is a staple at AutoCraft. Her years of experience and wealth of knowledge of all things AutoCraft makes Trish a key component of the Tidewater Express team.

Favorite part of working at AutoCraft Collision Center and with TEI?

Interacting with our customers and making sure they are happy with a job well done. I also really enjoy my work environment and co-workers.

What gives you energy?

To start the day – definitely coffee! Also, again I’d have to say my co-workers…We laugh. We have jokes around here, especially in the morning. I like to refer to it as ‘delightful sarcasm’!

Italian Sausage
