Tomi Hawkins, Owner & Instructor

I have been the owner and instructor of Hawkins Driver Education since 2002. Before becoming an educator, I served 10 years in the US Air Force and half of that time served, I lived in Spain and traveled throughout Europe.  After entering the civilian world, I spent several years working in the corporate world which became mundane and unfulfilling. Once I started my driving school many years ago, my life became anything but dull! 


I am a grandma of 3 very energetic grandchildren and they keep me “young at heart” and practiced regarding my patience skills! I enjoy scubadiving, baking, hiking, and a GOOD book!. Thanks for visiting my school;  I enjoy being a part of your teen’s road to success!
