  • Jenell has been working for Walker Mill Auto Collision since 2010 after working for a $35 million local automotive refinish supplier for many years. Her experience in accounting, customer service and HR needs serves as a valuable resource for us. Being a family owed business allows more time to focus on the customers' needs and paying attention to detail is her priority. Being involved in a collision can be stressful, confusing and a little inconvenient. Jenell takes the guess work out of the process. Born in Ann Arbor, her real passion is Michigan sports. Wolverines, Lions, Red Wings and Tigers lead the way.
