Joe Woodmansee - OWNER

My name is Joe Woodmansee. I am the proud owner of GearHead Auto Center. We are a family owned and operated business where “Your car is our passion!”  After getting out of the US Navy I moved to Phoenix to attend UTI (Universal Technical Institute) and graduated top of my class in 1991. I have always had a passion for cars and trucks. I love owning my own auto shop. I have a son Damen, a daughter Joelle, two grandchildren Wendy and Max, and we have three dogs, big Riley, little Riley and Sammy Wammy Bammy. I am on the Board of SAMA (Seventh Avenue Merchants Association) and for ASA (Automotive Service Association).

Josh Minier - TECHNICIAN

My name is Joshua Minier. I am 20 years old and I was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. I am very friendly and I love to meet and talk with new people. Since I was little, I have always loved inventing, seeing how things work, and taking things apart and putting it back together. I am passionate about cars, building and learning all that I can. When I first joined GearHead Auto Center, I quickly learned all about cars and how they function and it has been my passion ever since. GearHead Auto Center has become like my second family. When I am not working hard on a car at work, I spend my time with my fiancé and my pets at home.


Hi, I’m Timothy. I am 32 years young and have lived in the valley of the sun pretty much my whole life. From a young age on I was always intrigued with motors, vehicles and moving parts. I like to know how things work. Because of this, I have done most of my own work on my vehicles. My two strongest qualities are my persistence and patience. I won’t give up or stop until the job is done correctly. Oh, and did I mention my favorite thing to do? I LOVE GETTING MY HANDS DIRTY!!!


Hi everyone my name is Charla Kathleen Hill but I go by Charlie. I have to say, I’m a lucky girl. I have an amazing family and we are truly blessed.  At work I do a little bit of everything accept work on the cars but I am learning a lot plus I’m in walking distance from cool vintage shops, boutique stores and great restaurants.  On my days off, I love spending time with family and friends, eating good food, watching a good movie or playing poker online. BUT my favorite thing of all is big Riley, little Riley and Sammy Wammy Bammy, our three dogs. Just love, love, love them.
