Hi, I’m Kirti, one of the New Car Sales Managers with Germain Honda of Dublin. I’ve been with the store for over eleven years and enjoy its challenging yet fun environment. I bring a ‘customer first’ mentality to every deal and enjoy contacting my acquaintances even after the sale. After all, the Honda brand sells itself – I’m just here to take care of you! I enjoy spending my free time playing golf and cricket with my two children. My accolades include Council of Sales Leadership 2015, Silver Status Council of Sales, and Leadership 2014 Gold Status.
I’m Tyler Carr, pre-owned sales manager for Germain Honda of Dublin. My career in the automotive industry began in 2007, and I joined Germain in 2015, transitioning to the Honda team in January 2021. Through the years and different responsibilities I have held, I gained a vast knowledge of the car business as well as developed my customer service skills. I work hard to ensure that our guests receive the ultimate experience by valuing their time and having compassion to genuinely help. Born in Columbus, OH I was raised in Dublin and am a graduate of Dublin Coffman High School and The Ohio State University. My wife Veronica and I have two sons Falcon and Case. Away from work, I enjoy sports, travel, family, and poker. Vacations have me heading to a nice beach or the lights of Las Vegas. Of the Honda line, my favorite is the Odyssey. With kids this van is a game-changer! I look forward to meeting you when you visit and assisting with the purchase of your favorite vehicle.
My name is Jessica Roesch and I have been happily serving clients in the customer service industry for over 18 years. I grew up in Pickerington Ohio and graduated with a bachelor’s in psychology from The Ohio State University (O-H!). I entered the automotive industry in 2011 with BMW Financial Services and shortly thereafter began working for Germain Honda of Dublin as an Internet Sales Specialist in 2012. Over the past decade, I have found genuine joy in helping people find the right vehicle for themselves, their friends, their families, and their businesses while enjoying every step of the process. Car buying should be a smooth, enjoyable, and exciting journey and I have truly loved being a part of making that a reality for buyers over the years.
In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, spending time with my friends and family, attending sports events, and going to concerts and music festivals. I married my best friend and high school sweetheart. This year (2022) we celebrated the birth of our first child (a daughter) and 17 years together.
Life is wild. I look forward to hopefully having a small footprint in yours. Please call on me for any of your car-buying needs; it would be my absolute pleasure to serve you and yours.
I’m Cricket Miller, Director of Merchandising and Marketing for Germain Honda of Dublin. My career in the automotive industry began in 1993, and I joined the Germain team in October 2022. I have served in several capacities gaining experience in wholesale operations, advertising, digital media, legal and statutory regulations, and training and development. My dad, well-respected in the car business for over 50 years, imparted valuable lessons I live by daily, “Be genuinely loyal to your customers, and they will be loyal to you. Do what you say you are going to do, and never go back on your word.” His work ethic is why I dedicate my efforts to providing the tools needed for Germain’s guests to enjoy a Gold Standard experience.
I was born a Buckeye arriving 10 minutes into the 3rd quarter of the Oho State Xichigan football game. I graduated from Franklin Heights High School and then went to The Ohio State University for a couple of years, where I studied medicine. Once the car business pulled me in, I enrolled at Franklin University with a focus on business and marketing.
Away from work, I enjoy doing karaoke, bartending, fishing, playing old-school board games, watching football and lacrosse, writing, and anything that involves being in the sun – take me back to Hawaii! I love cooking on the grill. I am the reigning Grill Master Champion of my household, though my significant other, Jim, refuses to acknowledge my superior skills. You might even catch me kicking back and listening to some of my favorite music Straight Outta Compton, You Oughta Know, One, or Me and Bobby McGhee. Sometimes, I enjoy spending time with the six kids I claim as my own. There are three biological, one foster son, and two adopted kids who are now adults, Brandon, Alex, Leanna, Big Alix, Jessica, and Jonathan. People may find it surprising that I went undefeated for three years as my son’s little league football coach, I was part of the security team for Chuck Norris when he was in Columbus, and I have been trained in classical voice. Of the Honda line, the Ridgeline had me at “Hello .” It’s fun on four wheels.

Hi, I’m Justin Bunkers, sales consultant for Germain Honda of Dublin. I’m excited to be a part of the Germain team, putting my customer service skills to work. I believe in providing a quick, easy, informative encounter that delivers the ultimate car-buying experience. I was born in Michigan (don’t hold that against me), and as a typical military family, I never stayed in one place too long. I attended four high schools and graduated from Fountain in Fort Carson. The positive part of relocating so often was the ability to meet new people and establish friendships. I moved to Columbus (Go Bucks!) to be close to my children, Ayden and Hadley. You will find me on adventures with them if I am not at work. I still enjoy going to the gym, baking, embroidery, and working in my garage. I’ve never gone on vacation, but I’m looking forward to finding my favorite vacation spot one day. You can share your suggestions with me as I help you purchase your next vehicle.

Born and raised in Detroit, I love being from Motor City. Automobiles captured my imagination long ago. I’m a graduate of Royal Oak Dondero HS and Specs Howard School of Media Arts. Away from work, I enjoy the water, traveling, and the hot wind blowing through my thinning hair. I also enjoy spending time with my three children, Alexis, Matthew, and Andrew. The Honda Pilot is my favorite of the line so much, so I have one parked in my driveway.

I look forward to helping you and your Honda vehicle very soon!
My name is Jennifer Hess, I’m a Service Advisor here at Germain Honda of Dublin. I’m happy to have joined the Germain team in May of 2015. Prior to working in the automotive industry I supervised over dietary aides and dealt with family members directly. This helped me develop skills that I need to better assist our guest to help provide a quality experience. As long as our guest are happy, I’m happy. Born and raised in Columbus, OH I find that there are many things to do here and places to visit. We are lucky to have the Columbus Zoo not to mention several malls. After graduating from Westerville South HS I graduated from Fortis College. My two-year-old son is my world! My favorite thing is being a mommy! If I am not at work, I’m usually at the nearest park or ice cream spot with my son, Brennan. I love the ocean and warm weather. Making people happy is what I love to do! Putting my customer’s needs first is a top priority to me. Come see me! I love meeting new people!
My name is Amy Pickens Service Advisor for Germain Honda of Dublin. Having started in the automotive industry in 2010 I joined Germain in December of 2018 bringing with me a vast service background. Treating the customer as I want to be treated is my focus. I’m from Youngstown, OH and miss my family. The end of 2018 found our family relocating to the Columbus area for my husband’s job. Matthew and I have two children Jackson and Brigid. When I’m away from the dealership I enjoy spending time with my family. If I were to be a superhero it would be Wonder Woman. Why not? I enjoy music and my most played song would be AC DC Hells Bells. When our family escapes for vacation, Nashville is where I like to head. No one knows but I get nervous to speak in front of a crowd. My favorite Honda is the Pilot and I look forward to assisting you with the service of your favorite Honda.
