KENDRA - Shop Owner

Hi, I'm Kendra, owner of Dale's Body Shop. My Family moved to Forest City in 1980 when my Dad first established Dale's Body Shop. I graduated from Forest City High School and attended NIACC. I graduated NIACC with an AA degree in Business. In January, 1999, I purchased the shop from my father, Dale, and became the new owner of the Shop. I enjoy being a small business owner; the rewards far outweigh the challenges. I am fortunate to have good employees to work with and customers that make it worth while. Other than work, I enjoy spending time with my family, our family dogs, gardening and sewing.



Hi, my name is Shawn. I graduated from high school in Algona, Iowa in 2004. In 2005, I graduated from Iowa Lakes Community College with a degree in collision repairs. I joined the team at Dale's Body shop two years later, in August of 2007.  Other than the normal auto collision work, I enjoy doing custom paint jobs. I have worked on motorcycles, helmets and guitars. My favorite past times include bowling and snowmobiling with my wife, Sammi. I also enjoy working on cars in my spare time.


Hey, Derek here. I grew up in Forest City, where I graduated high school in 2010. In December of that year, I joined my mother, Kendra, at Dale's Body Shop. I grew up watching my Grandpa, Dale, and my Mom working at the shop and I helped them out while I was in High School. Since joining the team here, I have worked with detailing, repair and painting. I have also been trained in water-born painting methods. Dale's Body Shop has given me hands-on experience and I enjoy applying what I have learned to customer's vehicles. Outside of work, some of my favorite activities include hunting, fishing and raising cattle on my acreage.
