Christina Fuller
Internet Sales Director
(888) 745-0593

I was born in Birmingham, grew up in Cartersville, GA, and moved back to Birmingham in 2012. I started in the car business in 2009, although it wasn't at all the future I had planned for myself. With already graduating from Vogue Beauty School, I was ready to start what I thought was my passion until I had an offer I was too curious to pass up. I started at a Kia dealership as an Internet Agent and quickly feel in love with everything about this new career path.
In less than a month not only had I moved up to Manager, but had also taken over the Internet Department at the Hyundai store as well.
In 2014 I was blessed with an amazing son, Crimson Randall. Together they strive for greatness.
In September 2016 I went into Freeway Honda to do nothing more than purchase a CR-V and yet another twist of fate hit. I left with not only a new ride, but also a career opportunity.
I'm very passionate about what I do and I'm here to show everyone that purchasing a new vehicle isn't what it used to be. I'm devoted to helping everyone especially those that feel there's no way to help them!

Kayla Donaldson
Internet Sales Manager
(888) 745-0593

I'm from Oak Grove, AL and I'm an Internet Sales Specialist here at Freeway Honda. I have been working for Victory Automotive Group since December 2015. Before I joined Freeway Honda, I had no knowledge of any sort as to how to sell a car and it literally terrified me. Never in a million years would I ever guess that the day I got hired to work for this amazing company would be the day my life would be changed forever. This place has become my home. Not many people can say they wake up every morning excited about going to work like I can. It's not only because I have a passion for what I do, but it also has to do with the type of people I am surrounded by on a daily basis, which include people who inspire me to want to be better and who push me to reach my full potential because they see what I'm capable of even when I don't. That's what some companies lack, but not here. We are pushed to be the best at what we do.
One other thing I am most passionate about is being a mom to my beautiful baby boy, who is the love of my life and who gives me the motivation I need to be the best role model that I can be for him.
I can truly say if it wasn't for my son Daykota and my amazing team at Freeway Honda, who is also my family, I would not be the person I am today.

At age 18, I moved out on my own and when I went to buy my first car the sales manager asked me if I have ever been in sales. Having been working at Subway at the time, I told him the only thing I had sold were foot longs! He gave me a job and I have been in sales ever since. I have been with Freeway and Victory Automotive Group for a year now. I love the car business and Freeway Honda is my new-found home.

I'm a Sale Professional who has been in the car business for several years. I have been a Sale Manager and F&I Manager, but my most rewarding and enjoyable time is the face-to-face with clients helping them pick out the car they desire. I am a strategic leader with solid experience building and maintaining strong relationships with my clients whom I call "my car family" that we can successfully bring their desires to completion. I love the smiles on my car family's faces when they get the car they desire even when they thought they could not get it.
I'm a single father who raised two sons and one daughter, and I'm also the grandfather of 3 wonderful boys, who I respectfully call my kings. In May 2016 I lost my son Charles in a train accident.
I am a strong family man and Christian who served as the youth pastor at Livingstone Baptist Church and as a volunteer chaplain with the Birmingham Police Department. I work with families that have lost loved ones in train accidents. I also started a organization called "Stop for Charles" which pushes for stronger laws and better railroad guards at all railroad crossings.
I'm a graduate of the University of Alabama at Birmingham with a BS in Criminal Justice as well as a AAS in Paralegal Studies. I was also a member of Kappa Alpha Psi.

Lorenza Hicks

lorenza_hicks@freewayhondaal.com

I was raised in Birmingham, AL. Before devoting full-time work to Victory Automotive Group, I was enjoying an exciting career in Information Technology (IT) for an innovative energy company, where I knew my true love was client services - helping and guiding clients to the right product.
My educational background includes an array of IT skills from network security and network engineering. The ultimate goal is to pay it forward in helping young adults tap into their true potential in the engineering sector and to encourage the youth to learn not one skill set, but a multitude of skills to enhance and enrich their lives and strive for greatness.
As a car sales professional, my key goals to my client are to be very personable and make them feel comfortable and welcomed. Most importantly is to listen to the client needs and concerns. I help my clients find the perfect vehicle they will love and cherish. Above all, I am most passionate about helping people, which is why I decided to change careers to car sales.
In my free time, I love the outdoors, including planting flowers, building flowerbeds, planting seeds and watching them grow, and long hikes on a nature trail.

Joseph Edwards
Sales
(888) 745-0593
joseph_edwards@freewayhondaal.com

I'm from Birmingham, AL, but I was raised in a little town just outside of Bessemer named Brighton. Over the years, I've learned a lot and started the pursuit of many hopes and dreams. My hobbies are working out, playing basketball, working on cars, playing music, and most of all enjoying time with my family and friends. My favorite NBA player is Dwyane Wade.
My career dreams have always included working around cars. I attended college at Troy University, after going off to basic training and AIT school for the Army (31 Bravo, Military Police) with a major in business and minor in music and then later switching to engineering. During my time at Troy, I was afforded the opportunity to work with Mercedes-Benz in the Automotive Tech and Mechatronics Program with the University of Alabama and Shelton State Community College. During this time my thirst for repairing and enhancing vehicles became very vital. Gaining all the knowledge I did during this time is definitely the reason I love cars so much to this day.
Nothing compares to the time I spend with family and friends! I am baby #5 of 7 kids. Just like any other family we fuss and fight, but there isn't anything in the world I would not do for my 3 brothers and 3 sisters. I love my friends just as much - they are family. If there's anything of reason that I can do to put a smile on another person's face, I'm always up for it. You never know what anyone is going through, and you never know if you are the one who can help them through it. My love for people and compassion for others is so real that I couldn't help but find a job where I could work around cars and work with people. What better place to be than Freeway Honda!

I've been in the car dealership industry since October 2000 after moving back to Birmingham from the Baldwin County area. I married Jerry Joyner in April 2013, inheriting three step daughters and seven step grandchildren, one of whom, a ten-year-old granddaughter, lives with us. I have a deep interest in politics and I volunteered for a grassroots organization from 2001-11. In 2012, after the death of my only child shortly after his birth, my husband and I started a state-wide Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness campaign (Levi's Legacy) in which former Governor Bentley issued a Proclamation naming October 2016 as Pregnancy and Infant Loss month for the state of Alabama. We are working toward a Federal Proclamation in 2017 and also run a small animal rescue, Levi's Haven, from our home.
