"I would come work here after school when I was still in high school, I was 16."
Now that she's all grown up...married and the mother of three boys, Brooke Avery still works at the family's business and fits in quite well in this man's. In fact, some customers would rather she wait on them instead of one of the guys. Like a pro, Brooke knowledgeably talks about gadgets and accessories that could make any ride look better, but that's where her expertise stops.
"I don't install the parts, but I have before," she says.
"With three boys and surrounded by guys everyday, I have to have a little pink in my life."
And that's why Brooke's taken over one small corner of the world inside her dad's store and sells stuff the ladies like. She says this way, while the men are off looking at grills and wheel accessories, the women are checking out the latest shoes and handbags...so everyone's happy. And Brooke's happy because just like any working woman, this supermom is able to keep her family together.
"My first child started coming to work when he was two days old, so they've all grown up here. They get to be with daddy and mom, so it's kinda nice," says Brooke.
And what does she think about her kids going into the family business? "I'd love for them to stay close."
Spoken like a true mom, right? Well even though she jokes that some would call her crazy, Brooke wouldn't change anything in her life because for her...her work, career and family are a labor of love.
"I enjoy working with my husband, I get to see him everyday, I guess a lot of people don't say that, but I do."
