Kat, Shop Manager

My name is Kat, and I moved to Sonoma County in middle school. I have 6 children and have an amazing husband. When I am not at work I love spending time with my family and participating in my church. I am so excited to meet everyone who comes into Pauline's and help get people back on the road in safe vehicles.

Kate Jonasse, Owner

Kate Jonasse is an ASE Master Certified Technician with more than 20 years of automotive repair experience. Diagnostics is her specialty, and to this day, she loves solving problems.

Kate went to tech school in NY State (where she’s from), and was recruited by a Mercedes-Benz dealer in Atlanta, Georgia to receive factory training.

After several years working as a Mercedes technician, she moved to the West Coast, got her California smog license, and opened her first automotive shop, originally a one-woman operation.

Six years later, Kate took over Paul’s Automotive and renamed it Pauline’s Automotive.

Theresa, General Manager

My name is Theresa and I’m the Office Manager for Kate’s shops. I’m a recent transplant to California from Atlanta, Georgia after 20 years, but grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I have over 10 years experience in the automotive field which includes General Management of Automotive Parts Stores, Outside Commercial Part Sales and Southeast Regional Product Sales Specialist. I’m the mother to 5 grown fantastic kids (that includes 2 sets of twins, 18 months apart) and grandmother to 5 wonderful grands (that includes 1 step grand). When I’m not working, I love spending my time hiking with my dog and discovering the beautiful places Sonoma County has to offer.

Morgan, Technician

My name is Morgan. I’ve been working in the automotive industry over half of my life, and I am happy to bring my talents and knowledge to Sebastopol! I am an ASE Certified Technician with specialized training in areas such as repairs, engine performance, and electrical issues with an expertise in hybrid diagnostics and repair. When I’m not under the hood, I enjoy spending time with my family, our newborn daughter, and remodeling our first home together.

Vince, Technician

I have been working on vehicles since the age of 16 when I got my first car, a Chevy Citation.  I very quickly found out what a seized engine sounds like when I burnt the motor up racing a Ford Escort.  That's when I decided that I wanted to learn to fix my cars myself.  I've been fixing vehicles of various sizes ever since, from motorcycles to massive 300 ton passenger jets.  I have experience with all types of automobiles, from Chevy muscles cars to my specialty, Volvos.  When I'm not in the shop, I enjoy spending my time learning, usually something that is automotive or engineering focused.  Among my hobbies are photography/motion film, astrophysics, electronics/electrical engineering, and carpentry/metal fabrication.  I love working at Pauline's, and get a great sense of pride when customers leave confident that their problem is resolved!
