In case you haven’t noticed, family and community are both really important at RG Mechanical. And Office Manager, Erika Gehlhausen, is a driving force behind this philosophy. She’s been with RG Mechanical since it opened in September 2015 but has been working in her profession for 20 years.

It’s likely Erika’s voice you’ll hear on the phone. She’s responsible for answering calls, scheduling service appointments, ordering materials, invoicing, and a multitude of other tasks that keep everything at RG running smoothly. She does a lot of everything because she’s always ready to help someone in need. In fact, she admits to being “a bit of a people pleaser.”

Erika was born in Huntingburg, grew up in Birdseye, and has lived in the area her whole life. “When we started RG Mechanical we did it with the intent of giving this community another option for an honest, reliable, and affordable mechanical contractor,” said Erika. The whole community is filled with friendly, helpful people is one of her favorite things about living and raising her family here.

Erika has been married to her husband, Kevin, for 24 years and they have two daughters, Hailei, and Kenlee. Her favorite things to do are spend time with them, watching her girls play sports, and going camping and boating. People tease her that her talent is being a mom. “I guess I was just born to mother,” laughs Erika.

She got her start in the industry when she applied for an office position back in 1999. Looking back, she says learning to be patient is something her profession has taught her. Her favorite thing about RG is that “everyone is not only a co-worker but also a friend. It’s like having a giant work family.”
