To learn more about the men and women behind the success of our Bakersfield heating and AC service company, please take the time to read their personal bios below.




I have been a resident of Bakersfield California since the age of 3, after attending school I wasn’t sure what line of work I would do but knew I needed to enhance my work skills. In high school, I was excellent at doing accounting work so it made sense for me to gain more of those skills. I attended a county work training course to gain the skills of bookkeeping and clerical skills. I ended up landing my first office job in an HVAC business here in Bakersfield. I gained a lot of knowledge in the HVAC business to then use later when my husband and I started our own HVAC business.

He too started working in the HVAC trade and gained the needed skills to install HVAC systems and ductwork. Together we were able to build our own success as HVAC business owners over the course of 15 years employing 100’s of people who had limited skills and grew into excellent employees or highly trained employees who assisted in our growth. It’s been a great pleasure for me to be able to provide jobs to the people of Bakersfield and great service to our customers and contractors here locally and not only to Bakersfield but outlying counties around us. I hope we continue to bring outstanding services to our community and more opportunities for the people of Kern County to find a place at home with Holders Air Conditioning & Heating.
