My name is Wendy Stradford. I have been affiliated with the Air Force basically my entire life, my father served for 20 years and then I decided to marry an Air Force aviator. I can honestly say that you could call me a "car guy" not just another salesperson selling cars. I love the products that I am fortunate enough to represent, as well as the family dealership that employs me. Tysinger Auto Group not only care about their customers, they consider us a family.
