“I love to meet new people and help them out when they need a vehicle. It’s always fun to see individuals purchase their very first brand new car and how excited they are,” TJ said. Originally from Lincoln, TJ now lives in Bloomington-Normal. Stand-up comedy is one “secret passion” of his and he also enjoys participating in themed Trivia Nights. In his free time, TJ likes to hang out with his family including his parents, Tom and Amy, as well as his brother, Josh, and his sister, Jordan. The Green Bay Packers and the North Carolina Tar Heels are some of TJ’s favorite sports teams. He’s a big fan of 90’s music, including ACDC and The Wallflowers. TJ loves to eat steak and potatoes and his grandmother’s stuffed meatloaf. Thank you, TJ, for everything that you do! We’re glad you’re a part of the O’Brien Kia family.
A consistent top performer in the industry, we are lucky to have Allison as our Internet Sales Manager at O’Brien Kia. Her strong work ethic and fun personality make her very valuable to our team! Allison worked for the Kia store from 2003 to 2007 and then moved to Chicago. “I returned to Bloomington-Normal about six months ago and I’m glad to be back working with such an amazing team,” she said. One secret to her success is how she interacts with customers. “I’m a comedian, I love to make my customers laugh and feel comfortable. I provide a fun experience for them without any pressure,” Allison said. Outside of work, Allison enjoys spending time with her husband, Joshua, and her daughters. “Family time is so essential to us. We go to church together and make it a priority to sit down and have dinner together,” she said. They also have a basset hound named Truffles and a half bengal leopard cat named Little Foot. Allison has been a big fan of the Dallas Cowboys since she was a girl and says, “Go Dak!” Thank you, Allison, for all that you do! We’re glad you’re a part of the O’Brien Kia family.

Romy Williams has been a Service Technician at O’Brien Kia for about one and a half years. This week he performed quite a heroic act… According to Safety and Operations Director Chris Hardesty, “We had a scary moment today at the Kia store. A service customer was coming back to pick up her vehicle and in the parking lot her 2 1/2 year old son started having seizures. They brought him into the service write up area and Kia technician Jeromy Williams, who is a volunteer member of the Leroy Fire Department, stepped in and checked for a pulse and made sure the little boy was breathing. He then comforted the child and gave the mother reassuring words that her son was breathing while waiting on the ambulance to show up and take the boy to the hospital.” Romy is a parent so he understands the need to ensure the safety of children. He loves spending time with his daughter, Caidyn, who is three years old. He also has a Pitbull named Cally. Romy is a huge fan of the St. Louis Cardinals and even has a tattoo of the logo on his leg. Thank you, Romy, for being our hero! We’re glad you’re a part of the O’Brien Kia family.
