Hi, I'm Suby the dealership cat. I was rescued in December of 2017 from behind the dumpster at the dealership. I like to be pet and played with but I don't like to be held very much. Follow me on social media @SubySchulteSubaru.

I personally drank the Subaru Kool-Aid back in 2009 when I purchased my first of 5 Subaru's from Schulte Subaru. It's hard to describe the energy and feeling I got as soon as I entered the dealership. Everyone was always very friendly and helpful through each of my car deals. Even when I would come in for simple maintenance I got the feeling that they were genuinely happy to see me and wanted to help. I have been in sales most of my adult life, so I naturally gravitated towards a sales position here because of the passion towards Subaru and general vibe I felt as a customer at the dealership. Previously, I worked as a general manager of a jewelry store for over 8 years before taking my position at Schulte Subaru.


My wife, Reina, and I have 5 year old twins (boy and girl) named Paxton and Piper. My free time not spent with my family usually goes towards video games. Many of the employees at Schulte are friends inside and outside of work. We have a pretty good sized group that plays games together religiously.

I have worked for Schulte Subaru for just over 3 and a half years. My favorite part about working here is the people and relationships I have built throughout the sales process. Buying a car from Schulte is unlike anything you have experienced anywhere else in the auto industry. It's easy, quick and actually fun buying a car. I would love the opportunity to earn your business if I haven't already. Please feel fry to stop in and say hi or let me know if I can help in any way.

Some of my favorite hobbies are church, camping, traveling, flying planes, RC (remote control) cars, building and working on my Subaru's. I also enjoy motorcycling with my friends and DIY projects. 

I am an avid Subaru enthusiast and purchased my first Subaru in high school. Since then, my wife and I drive exclusively Subaru's! We currently have a 2021 Forester, 2020 Legacy XT, 2009 WRX that is fully built, 2011 WRX that is a work in progress, and a 2005 Outback XT. If you want to talk about Subaru's or cars in general, I'm your guy!
