Meet Chelsey Holman
Chelsey Holman, Service Advisor
When your equipment needs some servicing, there is a young lady behind the scenes keeping it all organized. Chelsey Holman has worked at Hanlon for about two and a half years as the Service Advisor. Her main responsibilities are opening and closing work orders, assisting customers over the phone and handling warranty claims- but she’s also likely to be the first smiling face you see when you walk into the service department. Chelsey says getting to know the customers is part of what she really enjoys about her job.
Chelsey didn’t always plan to work in the agriculture industry- she graduated from Lethbridge College with a diploma in Business Administration and her Automotive Pre-Employment certificate. After graduation, she went back to her hometown of Taber and began working at the Ford dealership there. When she decided to purchase her home in Lethbridge, it just so happened there was an opening for her at Hanlon.
Chelsey found dealing with agricultural equipment to be a bit of a learning curve in the beginning. “I didn’t know much about it at first, but eventually I started to learn how to decipher everything.” she says. “Everything is mostly hydraulics, which is quite a bit different than automotive,” she explains. One thing Chelsey appreciates most about her job at Hanlon is the work environment. “I like the people I work with, it feels like a little family and I always look forward to coming to work every day.”
When Chelsey isn’t at work she leads a fairly busy life as well. She attends a Fit Body Boot Camp class on a daily basis and ensures she gets her little Corgi named Penny out for her daily walk as well. Chelsey also enjoys softball and plays on a mixed league once a week in the summer.
Between work and after-work activities Chelsey does still find time to wind-down. Her and her boyfriend Josh enjoy camping together and often head down to his family’s lot in Montana to do so. “We have a little spot there and it’s kind of like we’re in our own little world.” she says.
With the farming season in full swing, the next few months at Hanlon will continue to be busy days for Chelsey, but she takes it in stride- “It can be stressful at times, but I’d rather be busy than bored,” she says, “I’m always learning something new here and I really enjoy that aspect of my job.”Back to News & Events
