Meet Dontaye Hansford

Manager, Penn Ave Exxon

Q. What is your favorite service to perform?

Air conditioning repair! When a customer comes in with a broken A/C during the hot DC summer, they look absolutely defeated. But when they get back in their car after service is complete, and they feel that ice-cold air hit their face, it’s a look of total satisfaction. 

A. Did you grow up in the DC area?

I was born in Oakland, California, but was raised in the DMV and have been here for about 15 years now.
