Laura Whitfield is constantly in “go- mode” at Levin Tire & Service Center in Highland. With nearly seven years of experience, she knows the ins and outs of working in the tire industry and is fully capable of handling anything that is thrown at her. Whitfield’s business card might say Human Resources, but she also works with Quality Assurance, Customer Service, and as an Assistant alongside the General Manager.
Originally from Illinois, Laura moved to Northwest Indiana to be closer to family about 10 years ago. It was around the same time that she made her entrance to the tire industry, which set her on the path she is on now. Whitfield credits and thanks long-time friend Mark Fentress for helping her out when she first moved to the area. After working at a call center for five years and at a car dealership, Whitfield says working at Levin Tire is the perfect marriage.
While her days are never the same, the aspect that stays constant is working alongside people and happens to be her favorite part of the job.
“I love working with my team,” Whitfield said. “We are very lucky to have the immense amount of talent here at Levin. Working with these people, that’s what makes it special”
Whitfield finds that working with her team makes her work easier and worthwhile. She also enjoys the network connections between the other Levin Tire & Service Center locations, saying that the entire company feels like a family – even when she’s away from her actual one. Levin Tire & Service Center does an excellent job of making the employees feel valued, planning parties such as the company picnic later this summer.
“Working at Levin Tire & Service Center makes me feel valued, important, and irreplaceable,” she said.
Working with Levin Tire & Service Center customers is another part of her career that she loves the most. Making sure that the customer comes in with an issue and leaves happily with a solution is a part of her job that makes her happy and comes easily to her.
Whitfield’s spare time is filled with her family, primarily her five children. She also enjoys crafting on her Cricut machine and creating t-shirt designs that she sells on her Etsy account. She laughs about not being able to draw on paper, but loves creating designs on her computer.
After nearly seven years working at Levin Tire & Service Center, Laura Whitfield can still say that she loves her career and the industry she works in, which is not an easy feat. Whitfield also looks forward to her future with Levin Tire & Service Center; excited to see how it grows and being there to see it happen.
