Kim Wilfong has returned home, and plenty of old friends and customers are happy to see her back where she belongs.
Wilfong came back to Performance Motors as a sales consultant Feb. 12. She is based at Performance's Parsons location on Pennsylvania Avenue. The family-owned dealership also has a sales lot at 1211 Harrison Ave. in Elkins.
She's incredibly familiar with the Parsons location and the job, having first worked for the former Lambert's Chevrolet starting in 1988. Wilfong twice took time off for family reasons and has worked other places briefly, but she keeps coming back to what she loves to do.
"I love working with people," she said between selling a pair of cars on her first week back on the job. "It's those friendships that I've developed and really enjoy. I've had a blast coming back."
Wilfong also has worked as a 911 dispatcher and a respiratory therapist, but selling trucks and cars is her calling. She is the mother of Nick Bolton, a Tucker County High School graduate who is now an actor in Los Angeles.
Patrick Darlington, owner of Performance Motors, said Wilfong fits well with the dealership's family philosophy.
"It's great to have Kim back with us," Darlington said. "Whether you're looking for a new Chevrolet or a pre-owned model from any line, Kim and all of our people will treat you fairly and remind you that at Performance we're all about service."
