Welcome to Meetin’ Wheaton Wednesdays — a new weekly feature where we’ll give you a glimpse into the lives of the friendly folks who make our dealership a special place to buy a car! Each Wednesday, we’ll profile Wheaton Honda staff members so you can get to know the nice people at Wheaton Honda a little bit better.
In our first Meetin’ Wheaton Wednesdays feature, we’d like you to meet our wonderful Service Receptionists, who may have greeted you at one of your recent service appointments.
From left to right in the photo above, we’re pleased to introduce Linda, Kayleigh, Dannelle, and Sophia!
We asked these ladies a few questions about their jobs, hobbies, and interests to give you a better understanding for their roles at Wheaton Honda and also their lives outside of the dealership.

What is your favourite part of working at Wheaton Honda?
Linda: Teamwork and the challenge of delivering customer service that I would like to receive when I am the customer.

Sophia: The fun, friendly environment.
What is your favourite thing to do outside of work?
Linda: Yoga and long walks in the river valley.
Kayleigh: I love to cook and try out multiple different recipes. I also love to bake, because everyone loves something sweet once in a while.

Which Honda vehicle would you recommend to potential buyers, and why?
Linda: It would depend on their specific needs. We have something to suit almost anyone.

Dannelle: Honda HR-V because it’s new and very cute.
Sophia: 2016 Honda HR-V.
What is your favourite vehicle of all time?
Linda: The new HR-V is what I have been looking for; compact, good styling, ample cargo space, AWD and it’s affordable.

Dannelle: Dodge Charger.
Sophia: 1966 Mustang
