Get to know us!
We are a locally-owned and operated family business. We moved our successful shop to this location, purchasing the land and the building because we knew Stapleton would be a good place to operate a family business. Allow us to tell you a little bit about our staff.
Mohamed Mouaddine, owner and master technician, was born and raised in Beni Mellal, Morocco. After 8 years of service with the Royal Guard, working for the king of Morocco, managing and maintaining the royal fleet of vehicles, Mohamed moved to the United States in 2001. He spent three years earning his ASE Master Technician Certifications while working as a tech at Ed Bozarth Cheverolet in Aurora.
In 2004, Mohamed opened Amina Auto Repair at Colfax and Lansing Street, moving the business in 2012 to his newly acquired building at the corner of Dayton and East 25th Avenue to be closer to the handful of Stapleton customers he had earned. Mohamed hoped his hard working, honest approach would fill the need for a good family-style repair shop in the neighborhood.
Mohamed is married to Malika Omari, also from Morocco, they have three children; Amina, Otman and Heba. Together they love to host family and friends. Mohamed was destined to be a Coloradan as he is a fearless skier, and looks forward to weekends fishing, camping and hiking. While he loves to travel the world, he can’t imagine living anywhere but in Colorado.
Abderazzak Mouaddine, technician, is Mohamed’s younger brother, also born in Morocco. He moved to the U.S. in January, 2013, and has trained under his brother since the day he arrived in Colorado. “Zak” loves hiking, swimming, playing soccer and being a kind and patient uncle to Mohamed’s children. Mohamed is proud of his hard-working brother and is happy to have him join the family business.
Laura Willius, office manager, referred by her Stapleton neighbors, first came to Amina Auto Repair as a customer in 2012 when her 2006 Honda Odyssey broke down. A graphic designer, Laura was so impressed with Mohamed’s honesty and work ethic, she offered to do a few graphic design projects for him. Soon, she joined the Amina team to also help with office duties and marketing (and occasionally jump a car battery for customers). Laura loves that she not only gets to connect with friends and neighbors in the shop but she has met people from all over the world while helping them with every sort of car issue.
Laura lives in Stapleton, is married to Jeremy Willius and has three children. She has a background in art, education and graphic design. In her free time she likes the outdoors, traveling and watching her kids play ball.
