    Hello, my name is Clara Serna and I am the Service Manager at DCH Torrance Toyota.  I have 25 years of experience in the automotive business.  I have worked as a warranty administrator, assistant in a body shop, assistant service manager and I am now the Service Manager at this dealership.  I come from a family of eight and in my free time I enjoy hiking and spending time with my family.  I am a mother to two amazing teenage girls.  My favorite sport to watch is basketball and my team is The Los Angeles Lakers.  On the other hand, I like to play baseball and my favorite team is The Los Angeles Dodgers.  What I like most about working at DCH Torrance Toyota are all my amazing coworkers who make this dealership a truly happy environment to work in.
