David Penado Lube Tech What is your favorite part about working for Leo & Son Garage? -There's always something new going on. There's always a new challenge, always something new to learn. It keeps the day moving and makes every day interesting. What are the top 3 highlights of your life so far? -First would definitely be my college graduation. I graduated from CSUN with a degree in Health Administration. The second would be seeing my mother reunite with her mother after being apart for almost 40 years. My mom hadn't seen my grandma since she left El Salvador. The third highlight would have to be seeing a really good friend of mine graduate from high school. He stayed with my family after his family was struggling with some issues so it was a big deal that he finished high school. When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? -Believe it or not I wanted to be a chef. When I was in elementary school my teacher asked what I wanted to be and I told her I wanted to be a chef. She gave me a cookbook and I still have it to this day. I still love to cook too. What is one thing on your bucket list? -I don't really have a bucket list. But I do have goals for the year. I want to travel to Cabo and I want to get at least one ASE certification.
