Service Department Manager - Chela (pronounced Chey-la) King.
Lorrie Johnson is Chela's assistant in the very busy service department. She addresses alot of the billing needs in that department. When she isn't at work she enjoys working on her art work and other hobbies, or boating around the San Juan Islands with a few friends.
Tim Slattery just offically moved into the Sales Manager job April 2013. He has worked with IMC for 9 years and it very excited about his new duties. Please call him with any questions about our stock boats, show boats and sales boats.
Lesley Combs, IMC's Sales Assistant, began her boating life in 1988, when she and her husband purchased a sailboat. In 1989 they sailed from Seward Alaska to Washington (and had an incredible 2 1/2 months). They were live-aboards for 5 years, 3 of which were on Lopez at Islands Marine Center. They have a daughter Kate and spend all their free time with her and her horse Poppy. They love working on Dressage.
Lynn moved here in 1989 after she and her husband traded in their old boat for a new one from IMC. "Most of our boating has been fishing, and there's nothing better that getting off work, walking down the dock, firing up the motor and just getting out there for a couple hours before going home. I count my life pretty lucky to have combined a life-long bookkeeping career with one of my favoite hobbies." Ask for Lynn about your account, bills we pay, office policies, store and office employment opportunities and benefits.
Diana Cochran (right) has lived on Lopez for many years and worked for IMC most of them. She and her husband Larry have two kids-Sara & Tyler. She enjoys her horses and is involved in 4-H. If you have any questions about your Marina bill talk with her.
