Santa Teresa Auto Repair is currently owned and operated by Arbella Yadegar. Santa Teresa Auto Repair was previously owned by her husband, John, who passed away from cancer, four months after his diagnosis. Arbella decided to take over her late husband’s business, because she believed she could continue to build a thriving and successful shop. With a new dream of creating an atmosphere where women could feel comfortable taking their car into a shop without feeling deceived or distressed, in what is typically a male dominated industry. Her goal is to build confidence and knowledge so that women can become independent in the care and maintenance of their vehicles.
