Tim Healey, Contributing Writer

Tim Healey was formerly an associate editor at Consumer Guide Automotive in Chicago. Before that he worked in the automotive industry as a service consultant for several different dealerships. Tim has a Master's of Arts in Journalism from DePaul University in Chicago and in his spare time enjoys the Chicago White Sox, running, and exploring Chicago. The 29-year old grew up in suburban Chicago and claims his first word was "’Vette," as in "Corvette." He's been around the industry in one capacity or another for most of his life, and he feels most at home behind the wheel of something fun and sporty on a suburban back road on a lazy summer day.
