A U.S. Army brat, Judy Lenard was born in Paris, France and has lived and travelled all over the world. She graduated from International School in Bangkok, Thailand in 1969 and went on to attend and graduate from St. Mary's University, earning a degree in English. She was employed as a second grade teacher at Concordia Lutheran Elementary School for over 20 years and became the marketing director at Cambridge Auto Center alongside her then-husband, Steve in 1996. Judy, with her husband Bill, enjoys travel, golf, motorcycle and bicycle rides, and church. She is mother to those above-mentioned beautiful children and grandchildren and loves spending time with her family.
As much a part of the building as the fixtures, our accountant, Kristy Allen, has been with us since 1991. As Steve and Judy's daughter, she has worked in nearly every position at Cambridge Auto Center, except technician. She graduated from MacArthur High School in 1992 and attended UTSA. She is married to Dewayne Allen and together they have two lovely daughters, MaryAlice and Lola. When she is not working she enjoys travel, family bike rides, yard work, politics, a good book, and an even better movie.
Dewayne Allen literally joined the Cambridge Auto Center family in 2003 when he married Steve and Judy's daughter, Kristy. Technically, he came aboard Cambridge Auto in 2007 as our General Manager. Born in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains, the Riceville, TN native came to San Antonio via the U.S. Air Force in 1996, stationed at Lackland AFB. He is the father of two daughters, Lola and MaryAlice, and spends time with his family enjoying bike rides, zoo trips, travels, Sea World visits, and cookouts. He is an assistant baseball coach to Lola's team (Go Cheetahs!) He is a rugby player, a voracious reader, and a music lover. He enjoys concerts and music fests and attends as many as possible. Some of his favorite artists are The Black Crowes, Gov't Mule, Ian Moore, Mike Farris, The Black Keys, and Zac Brown Band.
