As fate would have it, when her father approached her about taking on this role 2017, she quickly realized her passion for being involved in the business. Now, she can’t see herself ever doing anything else. Being a female in the automotive industry does not come without challenges.

The team at Hudson’s Import prides the company’s longevity on its honesty and integrity. They also celebrate providing the best service possible to their low country clientele. Their motto is, “We’re not just taking care of cars, we’re taking care of customers.” “We aren’t here to push service and repairs on our customers. We simply empower our customers with the knowledge they need to make their own decisions,” said Hudson.
