Doug worked in numerous car and implement dealerships along with being a commercial over the road driver for 13 years. Palmer Bus Service came into the Mountain Lake school system in the fall of 2015 and Doug started as Terminal Manager at that time. Doug has always enjoyed anything with wheels. He has modified a couple custom pickups and ATVs over the years. Doug enjoys taking care of his lawn and detailing cars for others. Of course, his family comes first before all of this!!
