Larry, was born in Boston and raised in the Suburbs in a town called Braintree. He went off to college in upstate New York, in Troy overlooking the Hudson River, a student of engineering and philosophy. A few years later I moved to Huntington Beach, to live the So Cal lifestyle.

Moved to Portland Oregon about 30 years ago when Portland was a smaller city, been here ever since enjoying what the NW has to offer good wines, beer and scenic hikes.

Would enjoy helping you find the perfect vehicle for your exact needs and lifestyle.

Lee Stearns
Subaru Product Specialist
(503) 736-1438

Hey ya'll!


My name is Lee, a fairly recent transplant to Portland. I moved here from Virginia Beach where I managed a band, did event promotion, and owned a recording studio. I even met and worked with some nationally touring acts! Most recently, before I started in automotive consulting I was a territory manager for a firm that promoted products in big-box wholesale stores.


Originally from a sleepy town in Georgia, I've been in sales and consulting since high school (often compared by peers to "Hustler Kid" from the cartoon Recess).I hold a Bachelor's of Science in Marketing and a Master's of Arts in Human Resources. I enjoy working with people to achieve a goal, and taking the intimidation out of the purchase experience. It's not the "car business" it is the "people business" and I apply this approach with every client. Check out my Google and Yelp reviews on the Subaru of Portland pages! Its easy to tell how much enjoyment I get from working here. A smiling client is a great feeling, a referral client is the best feeling in the world!


When not in the office I am on a never ending quest to find the world's best chicken wings (send me suggestions!), love going to music festivals, or reading with a gin and tonic at arm's length.

Come down to Subaru of Portland and I guarantee you the Lee's Love promise!

Perfect for her interests as a skier and hiker. As the Trade Up Advantage Specialist, Sheila is truly proud to "Share The Love" with customers, family and friends, and to work with such an enthusiastic and talented team here at Subaru of Portland!

Tyler Kimmett
Subaru Product Specialist
(503) 736-1446

In Northern Colorado born and raised. On the corn fields is where I spent most of my days. Hanging out, maxing, relaxing all cool, I was husking some corn out past my school. When a couple of guys, they were revving up good, started racing Subies in my neighborhood. I went on one little race and my mom got scared and said "You better go off to college or to a job fair."


I packed all I had in my 96 SVX and drove out to Oregon to see what would come next. 4 years of college and a bachelor's degree, a career in the medical field was who I was to be. Another 4 years down the line and you know I wasn't happy, I thought to myself " let's make a change and make it snappy". 


I looked back to when I was just a kid in a corn field and realized my love for Subaru never yielded. Top of the line product at fair market price, I'm a salesman now just bursting with life.  Come down and meet me at Subaru of Portland, I'll show you performance, safety, and value that you can really feel. From Outbacks and Crosstreks to a WRX and the new Ascent, if a Subaru is what you want then let's make a deal!

Brenden Fitzgerald
Accessory Manager

Brendan grew up in Davis, California a swimmer, water polo player, and life-long seeker of challenges and thrills. Two weeks after turning 17, he graduated from high school, moving to Long Beach, CA to play water polo for the US Olympic coach. During college he worked for the Long Beach Fire Department as an ocean lifeguard while earning his degree in nutrition & dietetics, a field of study chosen solely because of its relationship to athletic performance. A few months after graduation and his seventh year with Long Beach Fire, his life trajectory deviated abruptly and unexpectedly - he learned he could fly. Not very well, and not for very long, but he did it. Moments later, that very brief flight ended face-first into the freeway where he was reunited with both halves of his motorcycle. After a lengthy recovery, he became a financial advisor, spending a few years in Sacramento before moving to Portland with his (now) wife, Avelyn Ashe. With a desire to work in a field more closely tied to his interests, he made his way to Subaru of Portland, where he now resides. 

Hobbies and interests include motorsport, building computers, surprising and embarrassing his wife, and, apparently, writing about himself in the third person.
