Fun Fact
If all else fails this guy will give you his kidney. No really, Kit cares so much about other people he donated one of his kidneys to a complete stranger. He kinda needs the other one, but you get the point.

As a previous owner of a residential construction company, I truly know what it means when someone says “time is money”. As President in this business, it is my responsibility to make sure from the time you enter our facility to the time you leave, your visit is the most streamlined and efficient experience.

Fun Fact
I am certified to operate and manage 3 types of power plants: coal, natural gas and nuclear. I have a lot of hobbies, but I would say my biggest passion is music. I’m such an audiophile I have a whole room in my house dedicated to listening to music.

Fun Fact
I love golf, there’s nothing like watching the sun rise on an early morning, the smell of fresh cut grass and the sounds of the birds waking up singing their songs along with having to perform well against a stiff competitor, I always love a good challenge.

Ashlee Yunker


What does it mean for me to “help you get back to your business”?
As a former scale clerk, I have had the pleasure of getting to know my customers and hearing what they go through on a weekly basis. One driver said something that really stuck with me “Since Raptor has opened, my hours have gone from 60 hours a week to 40. I can actually get home at a decent time. “Helping you get back to business”, means that you can get what you need to get done quickly and still have time for the important things. 

Fun Fact
I have many hobbies but spending time with my two boys will always be my favorite. Watching them catch fish, trying something new for the first time, or accomplishing a goal will always put a smile on my face.
