Who We Are
Andrew is the Owner and Mechanic of Marinelli Auto Service. After completing a degree in music, with the hope of learning skills that would be helpful to his community, he went back to school and studied in the Technician Automotive Career Training program at Seminole State College.
Andrew has since worked in a variety of auto shops; his work history includes local independent garage and corporate dealer experience. He brings this variety of knowledge to his own shop seeking to build trust through quality-focused, professional automotive service, honesty in communication, fairness in practice, and kindness in action.
The Mechanic’s Wife
Andrew’s wife, Bethany, is the Office Manager and Community Engagement Director. With a degree in Physical Education and English, Bethany worked in youth ministry for several years. She eventually found her way into a non-profit communications role and lent her support to Andrew as he launched Marinelli Auto Service in 2015.
In 2016 Bethany left her job to work alongside Andrew full-time. Now she does whatever it takes to keep Andrew out of the office and in the shop working on your vehicle. Additionally, she writes the shop blog, From the Mechanic’s Wife, where you can find basic explanations on a variety of topics about the complex world of automotive mechanics.
The Mechanic’s Mastermind
Mike has dual purpose at Marinelli Auto Service, working as both a Mechanic alongside Andrew and an Administrative Assistant to Andrew and Bethany.
Mike and Andrew met in the automotive program at Seminole Community College (now Seminole State College) and hit it off right away. After working closely together in class, Mike and Andrew followed each other to different automotive jobs and found they worked really well together. When it came to hiring someone to work at our shop, Mike was a no brainer and the timing was perfect!
Mike works with us 3-4 days each week and is also back in school pursuing a degree in Electrical Engineering. His knack for diagnostics, general problem solving, and mathematics is a tremendous asset!
