Hear from our awesome Love and Care HVAC staff
Jose Jaramillo, Journeyman Technician
My name is Jose Jaramillo and I was born and raised in Sacramento and have been in the HVAC industry since 2006. Way back when, Chris actually encouraged me to come and work with him at Bell. I enjoy my job and love to help others. I am a clean and organized worker and pay close attention to detail, which translates well in this business as there is no room for error (in some of the tight spaces I get into, there’s no room for anything!) Before I came to Love and Care I was able to get cross-trained as a plumber, so I have all of my HVAC certs and experience and can do plumbing as well. I came to Love and Care in the first few months after they opened and have not looked back since. They treat me like family, and respect me and my skills and allow me to work at my pace, while encouraging my growth. When I am not working, I love to spend time with my wife and kids, and love to play outside with them. In fact, I love doing pretty much anything outdoors.
Marshal Harlan, Journeyman Technician
My name is Marshal Harlan, and I have been in the HVAC business since 2006. I am a second-generation technician and learned a great deal from my father when I was too young to work. When I became of age, I wanted to serve my country in the military prior to going to work full-time, and it was there that I learned a great deal of discipline and respect that has served me well thus far in life. When I left the military, I started in the HVAC trades doing new home residential installations for a year and a half, and then moved into retrofit installations, where each day brought a new challenge; I really enjoy this aspect of installing because I like my mind to be challenged. Like in the military, the emphasis is doing a quality job right the first time. I’ve been EPA Universal certified since 2008, and NATE certified since 2010. Additionally, I am WARD flex certified, track- pipe certified, and carry multiple other certifications from various manufacturers. I take pride in what I do every day to deliver a premium finished product that we can stand by. I consider this trade an art form, and believe me, not everyone is cut out for it! It’s hard and dirty work, but rewarding; it takes a special person to come in and do it every day. I treat each client as if it was my own family member; family is the most important thing to me.
Derek Craft, Journeyman Technician
My name is Derek Craft. As a carpenter’s son, the trades and working with my hands came naturally to me. I spent many years in the construction world (underground, plumbing, concrete, etc.) before finding a home in the HVAC industry in 2015. This career is not only fun but rewarding in many ways: diagnostics, problem solving, explaining the situation in plain English to customers, and mostly, the satisfaction of getting their HVAC back up and running and the household comfortable again. I have been learning and mastering my craft since I started and will continue to do so. Proper training and certifications are continuous with an ever advancing industry. I am proud to be a part of the Love and Care team and will ensure I provide the utmost professional service possible. When not at work, anything off-road and outdoors is my passion. With my growing family, (2 children so far) my hands are always full. Finding the balance between work and family is very important to me. The integrity and family values held at this company is what any employee would be excited and thankful to have the ability to be a part of.
Chase Campbell, Journeyman Technician
I was born and raised in beautiful South Lake Tahoe and lived the dream of being able to ski all the time in one of the most beautiful places on earth. Over the years I have worked in several different construction trades, wearing many different hats. That breadth of experience has helped me “see” the HVAC industry through an exceptional eye. One of the personal things I have been able to bring with me along the journey is my care and compassion, which was cultivated by being raised by a single mom of three. My wife and I relocated to the Placerville area in 2016, and have since purchased our first home; we plan to start a family in the near future. I first met Christopher Shaw, the owner of Love and Care, when I moved to the Placerville area and went to work for the largest HVAC company in that market. In late 2020, when the call came and the opportunity presented itself, I went to work for Chris. I was thrilled to bring the knowledge and skills I had acquired over the years and apply them to the Love and Care team. Along with the continued training we receive at Love and Care, there is no doubt that my skills will both stay sharp and improve, allowing me to provide my customers with top of the line technical skills and exceptional customer service.
Lucas Taylor — Journeyman Technician
My name is Lucas Taylor and I have been working in the HVAC business since 2003 when I started with Bell Brothers. Over the years I have strived to learn something new each day, and I have also been able to see that a little positive thinking and attitude, along with a friendly smile, can go a long way. Our job is a difficult one, physically enduring tight quarters, long hours, and extremely hot attic temperatures. At the end of the day it is very rewarding to be able to deliver comfort to homeowners, who have more times than not been suffering the elements without conditioned air. I am a hard-working guy and definitely enjoy the challenge that this job brings. When I am not working, I like to be outdoors and also enjoy sports, music, and good friendships.p>
Gregory (Bubba) Perinati, Installs/Sales
My name is Gregory Perinati, but if you ask anybody about Gregory, nobody will know who you are talking about. Now if you ask about Bubba, everybody will know! I work for the California State Senate in the security division as an X-Ray Technician in the early part of the day. It’s my job to make sure nothing gets into the Capitol that can do any harm. Since I start early and get off early, I was looking for an opportunity to harness my boundless energy. I already knew construction first hand and know how to do just about everything building, fixing, and remodeling homes, but I did not know HVAC until coming here. Now with the help of Chris and my cousin Tim, I am feeling more and more comfortable in HVAC. For fun I like to hunt and fish, and love to coach my son and daughter in soccer and baseball. My wife and I have been together since high-school, and we spend a lot of time with our very large Italian-Greek family.
Tyler Newton — Apprentice Installation Technician
My name is Tyler Newton I was born in Sacramento, CA where I lived for 16 years before moving to Dallas, TX. I lived there for about a year before deciding it wasn’t for me and moved back to Sacramento. I have been working in the HVAC trade since the summer of 2019 and so far am enjoying the hard work and the new skills it is providing. Before this, I worked in environmental construction, but felt it wasn’t pushing me enough. Working in HVAC can be challenging at times, but extremely rewarding, especially when you get to see the smile on someone’s face after you get their system up and running. I was also lucky enough to start with a great company who truly understands what Loving and Caring is all about. My step-mother and Chris have been friends for some time now, which is how we met, and how I was able to get not only a great job but a great boss. When I’m not working I enjoy herpetology (study of reptiles/amphibians), gardening, reading and especially traveling. I get along well with others and Love putting a smile on customers’ faces.
Jeff Swan — Apprentice Installation Technician
My name is Jeff Swan and I was born in Las Vegas but moved to Sacramento when I was a young boy, and grew up as a Sacramentan. To say I am a family man is an understatement; my wife and I have three kids of our own and two more that we take care of as our own, so you could call us the Magnificent Seven! I like to hunt and to fish and to work on cars in my spare time. I am not the kind of guy to sit around and watch the grass grow or the paint dry; I like to work and when I am not working I make my time count by spending time with my family and by getting stuff done.
My name is Mark Shaw. I am the older brother to Love and Care’s founder Christopher Shaw. After spending the last fourteen years with Comcast, I decided it was time to join the family team and go to work for Love and Care. At Comcast I played many roles ranging from cable tech to residential account management, and finally small and medium business account management. I am a tradesman and enjoy honing my skills in woodwork, electrical, masonry and even as a locksmith. But my number one passion is food! I graduated Le Cordon Bleu in 2009, and like many others I hope to own a small restaurant someday closer to retirement. For now, I will cook for my family and for the guys at the office—which will have a firehouse kitchen feel. I look forward to this new chapter of my professional career and look forward to meeting many of you!
Ali Wolfe-Jones, Customer Service Representative
Hello my name is Ali Wolfe-Jones! I was born and raised in Sacramento. I am very excited to join the team here at Love and Care as the new Customer Service Representative (CSR). I love helping clients in any way that I can; it makes for the best work day when I have successfully assisted a client. I am already familiar with the company’s CSR software because I previously worked for an electrical company that used the same program--so that's nice to be able to jump right in. One of my passions is makeup artistry, and I spent several years in that industry working for a large makeup company; I love the beauty industry and I am always interested in new trends and products. I also enjoy traveling alongside my pug, and spending time outdoors. I'm pretty excited to become the newest addition to the Love and Care Team, and can already feel like part of the family, in this family run company.
Alyssa Yanke, Customer Service Representative
Over the years I have worked as a Customer Service Representative (CSR) for several of the larger HVAC companies in the Sacramento market. During that time I have been able to hone my skills, developing the most important one for my position, communication. Since much of communication is non-verbal, it is essential to have a command of the language when communicating on the phone and through email. Your tone, whether in voice or in writing, really tells the customer a lot about you and the work they can expect from you—and ultimately the company. Additionally, I take pride in being able to work efficiently and productively, and have proven myself to be a dependable employee. My goal is to provide customers with a satisfying experience, and I believe that honesty is the best policy. I work to incorporate all of my experience and skills I have accrued every day, and in all that I do. When I am not taking care of our clients, I love to travel with my young (and growing) family. I appreciate the work-culture that Love and Care has fostered, and the value that they place on family.
Hannah McMahon, Administration
I started in the administration side of the HVAC business to help my dad (Tim Davidson) process the orders and get all the customer files completed. I really enjoy organizing the piles of paper that come in and am pretty good at it (I am a neat and tidy person!). I am actually starting to learn a lot about the business and enjoy the opportunity to make a little extra money while I raise my two little girls. I can process files in my time when the kids are at school, or even sleeping. Being a stickler for details has helped me learn the process quickly, and helped the company stay organized. We recently launched a new CRM software program, so I am entering all the data into that as well. At our own home we did a complete system replacement in the fall of 2018, and I was able to see first-hand how hard the guys work every day, gaining a new appreciation and understanding for what they do. Since this is truly a family business, I am curious and hopeful about how I will fit in in the future when my girls are in school full time. In my free time, I enjoy cooking with my husband, travelling, playing with the girls, and of course reading mountains of books to them (over and over and over!).
