Shelby Crist

WELCOMING COMMITTEE

Duck Creek Tire would not be the same without this lovely girl walking the show room. Shelby is a self proclaimed ASE Certified shop mascot. To her, customer service is greeting each and every customer with a waggin tail! Those with food come first of course. Shelby resides in LeClaire with Ron. In her free time when she's not hard at work she enjoys eating, and getting her belly rubbed. Shelby loves any car that has a window that will roll down to feel the wind blow through her hair. She is also the chairman of the Shelby treat fund and is always accepting donations.

Ron is a self-proclaimed “car geek”. His parents met at a dealership and it’s been in his blood ever since. Being in this industry is, “the only thing I’ve ever done” starting from his 16th birthday up in Dubuque, Iowa. (That gives him over 27 years experience if you’re counting!) Ron’s favorite part of coming to work every day is getting to interact with customers and help them with their maintenance concerns. Ron is married to his lovely wife, Amy and has one son, Mitch and his dog, Shelby. In his free time, Ron coaches his son’s baseball team, enjoys anything with wheels, and works with the rest of the Duck Creek Tire & Service staff to sponsor local teams, the United Way and the Wildwood Ranch.
