 I have been in the retail auto industry for over 20 years. My family and I have vacationed in Vermont for a long time, and in September of 2021 we followed our dream and moved here. I have a beautiful wife, three amazing kids, and a granddaughter. We enjoy all of the outdoor life this state has to offer. We are also animal people, as we have four dogs and two cats. I have only been with Bokan a short time, but love how their customers and employees are their first and only priority.

I have been in the car business since 2009. One of the things that keeps me in this business is being a part of a special and very important purchase in someone life.  I played tennis professionally for 3.5 years on the tour. After that I taught tennis for quite sometime before finding the car business through a family friend.  I have a beautiful wife of six years now and a smart energetic son who is 14!  Besides tinkering around at our beautiful home in Georgia/ Milton area, I love the outdoors!  I am also a water and boat lover!  Come see me here at the Ford store and let me show you how we are different and show you how at Bokan YOU CAN!!

I have been in the car business since 1999. I was born and raised in Essex, VT and still live there today. I am happily married to my wonderful wife of 18 years and have three incredible children. I have one son and twin girls that keep me busy when I am not here selling cars. I am a very avid sports fan, especially hockey. I played hockey all my life right up through college. If you don't see me here at Bokan I am most likely out on my boat in Lake Champlain with my family. I look forward to assisting you into your next vehicle here at Bokan Ford.

I was born in New Hampshire, grew up in Florida, and relocated to Vermont when I was in middle school. I graduated from Missisquoi in 2006 and I am a veteran of the United States Army. I served in the military for five years following high school, before going to Michigan to pursue a one-year program in automotive service technology. I moved back home in 2014 shortly after school and have been here ever since. My wife Brooke and I currently reside in Chittenden County, and I am a father of three beautiful boys. On the weekends, you will usually find us spending time with family, on the beach, or attending car shows as we are both automotive enthusiasts. I have been in the auto industry for over six years now and I have been lucky enough to experience every aspect of the business. I have been a service advisor, master sales consultant, commercial business manager, and now the sales & finance manager for our Ford and CDJR brands over the past 4 years at Bokan. My overall goal here is to make sure that your experience with our team is one to remember because we pride ourselves in being different, and being involved with the community. We treat everyone like family, because here at Bokan - YOU CAN!! WE ALL CAN!

I was born and raised in Texas, but I've been in New Hampshire and Vermont for 44 years. I'm proud to tell people that I live in Vermont. I am a father to three and a grandfather of two. My wife Jenn and I live in the Middlebury area (yes, that is 75 miles from The Bokan Auto Group) but the Bokan family is definitely worth the drive. They not only care about their employees but also their customers. After 25 years in the auto business, I can tell you for a fact that Bokan's is a great place to work, and a darn good place to buy your next vehicle.

Born-and-raised in Franklin County, I attended Richford High School. I started working at the Corner Store counting bottles, from there I went to Burger King here in St. Albans. After the Corner Store and Burger King, I've also worked at Bond Auto Parts, Jolley's, Peerless Clothing and Franklin Foods. I needed to shift gears in my career, so I came to Bokan. In my free time, I enjoy kayaking and camping. I also keep a small garden at home where I grow corn, cucumbers, and sunflowers. I love spending time with my two dogs in my yard. I am looking forward to helping Bokan customers with their new and preowned vehicle needs!

I recently started at Bokan in January. Before Bokan, I worked at Costco for three and a half years where I served in many roles and handled various tasks. In my free time, I like to go four-wheeling with friends and playing with my blue-nose Pitbull named Rex. He likes to sleep a lot but I kind of force him to come do things with me. I also like to spend a lot of time with my boyfriend Chace, we like to work on cars together (when it is warm out) and go to car meets! Chace and I moved to Alburgh on family property, where we hope to raise kids of our own someday along with a couple more pets! I have one nephew and one niece, I was born-and-raised in Vermont and grew up in Milton. I graduated from Milton High School in 2017.

A military baby; I have spent most of my life traveling and moving before finding a home here in Vermont. I was born in Germany, elementary in New Mexico, grew up in Texas and now I'm here, having been a resident of countless cities. I studied Psychology at Castleton University, I'm a music junkie and casual reader. I love to be out and about as much as I can, always looking for the next adventure. The work environment here at Bokan has been my primary motivator to settle. You can find my job elsewhere but the staff and community are one of a kind. Work will always be work but being surrounded by genuine, passionate individuals who care and look out for each other is what makes Bokan, well Bokan!

I was born in Montreal but moved to the states when I was eight. Ever since then, I have lived in St. Albans and as of recently, purchased a house here. Besides making myself well known with the locals, I like to watch hockey and football as well as fish when I can. Why do I love working here? If I had to narrow it down to one thing, it would be the friendly environment I get to experience everyday. Even though these are my coworkers and customers, I have been able to make awesome friendships that go beyond the workplace.

I was born and raised in central Maine but have considered myself a Vermonter since 2012. A year after graduating from the University of Maine Farmington, my husband and I found work in St. Albans, packed up our small apartment and cat, and embarked on a new adventure. In 2017, we had our daughter, and in 2018 bought our first house in Enosburg. While we make frequent visits to our family in Maine, I have really enjoyed the small town feel of Vermont. I have worked in the Franklin County school system and at a private dental practice prior to coming to Bokan, so I had the opportunity to really get to know and love this community. I look forward to continuing to serve the community alongside the wonderful folks at Bokan.  

In my free time, you can usually find me cooking, gardening, reading, or just goofing off with my daughter.

After working for nearly 10 years in college athletics, I decided to switch gears and joined the car industry. I've lived in the state of Vermont for more of my life - graduated from Castleton University, started my career at Dartmouth, moved to Western Maine for two years, then returned to the Green Mountain State and worked in the UVM Athletic Department for five years. I love putting my creative skills to work at Bokan whether it's a sweet video on a new vehicle, eye-catching graphics, or producing content on our social media platforms. I live in Milton with my lovely wife and our yellow lab puppy. In my spare time, you'll find me on the golf course and doing some freelance graphic design work.

I am also a huge fan of the band One Direction and have a soft spot for band member Harry Styles.

My career in the auto industry began as a receptionist at a campus in South Burlington which included Ford, Toyota, and MG franchises.  I remember watching as the last MGB was delivered to the owner's wife, who got in the car and asked what the third pedal was for!  Other opportunities at the Dealership became available to me and I became the billing clerk / title clerk and eventually a finance manager in the Ford store for a couple of years.  My first position as an office manager was for the dealership which had the Hyundai and Subaru franchises in Burlington.  Working at a motorcycle / recreational vehicle dealership in Essex was the next stop in my career.  Although many of the processes are the same as an automobile dealership, the atmosphere was more laid back and relaxed.  From the motorcycle dealership, I went on to a store which had Oldsmobile, Cadillac, and Pontiac franchises.  The dealer had a Honda dealership, and I took on the responsibility for that store as well.  I worked with GM, Honda, Acura, VW, and Audi under that dealer.  Having worked with Dan, Rick, and Chris in the past, it's been an easy transition to Bokan for me.  The culture which they've established ensures that BOKAN is where I wish to conclude my career!

I have been married to Steven Cheney for more years than I wish to disclose.  We have two offspring, Joseph and Joanna who are fully grown and have given us 6 grandchildren, Damion, Elizabeth (Liz), Jack, Andrew, Emma, and Cora.  My son's wife, Diane has become one of my best friends over the years.  For those of you still dealing with growing children, especially teenagers, take comfort in the fact that Grand Kids are a lot more fun!  We have been blessed with a wonderful family and we enjoy spending time with them.  Attending our grandchildren's concerts and sporting events have brought us a great deal of joy!

Steven and I have moved many times, always with a perfectly logical reason at the time, usually man logic!  Steven is truly great at remodeling and building. Several of the homes we've lived in were designed and built by him. 

Jazzercise has been my exercise program of choice for over 20 years.  It's an ever changing, evolving dance- based program which has kept me engaged.
