Ian Bauman, Mechanic 

Ian started his journey to becoming a mechanic at an early age. As a kid, his Grandmother would take him to garage sales with a budget of a dollar to buy a used, broken toaster, hairdryer or other electronic appliance. Ian enjoyed taking them apart, figuring out how they worked and sometimes getting them working again. Soon enough he was old enough to apply for an oil & lube / tire technician position where he began his career. Attending classes and adding to his knowledge, Ian worked his way up to a line technician at Family Tire and then on to Iron Mountain Autoplex where he diagnosed, serviced and repaired many modern vehicles from end to end. Now at UpTown, Ian has the ability to use all of his knowledge and skills in one place and is a perfect addition to our team.

Julie is originally from the Kansas City, Missouri area and recently moved to Colorado. She grew up in a family owned Napa Auto Parts store. When Julie turned 16 she began working in the store, starting at the bottom and spending 27 years there, she worked quickly her way up to the Assistant Manager position until the business was sold. Eventually Julie ended up working at a local Ford dealership as a Service Advisor where she was able to put her past experience to work and grow her knowledge of the repair side of the industry. Julie is our newest team member and enjoys her job here and is looking forward to working with our customers for years to come.
