Pat Wirth | Potomac Falls Express Lube & Carwash

pat wirth photoPat Wirth is the quintessential baby boomer who grew up in a small town in Sussex County, New Jersey, in the 60's and has a compelling rags to riches story that led her through a couple of marriages and a couple of states to her home here in Virginia where she became an entrepreneur in the male-dominated fast lube industry.   Potomac Falls Express Lube & Car Wash is the only women-owned fast lube in the state of Virginia and it is the only one actively integrating innovative “Green” services and eco-friendly products. 

Pat is internationally recognized as an industry leader and currently sits on the board of directors of the Automotive Oil Change Association to which she was elected President this year; only the second woman president in the twenty-three year history of the association!  She frequently writes articles for her trade’s national magazine, National Oil and Lube News, and has presented numerous seminars at international conventions. 

As a community leader, Pat serves as the President of the Regal Center Business Owners’ Association and she is active in the Countryside Leadshare Group that is part of the Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce.   Giving back to the community is an integral part of her business model and in addition to helping dozens of youth organizations she supports breast cancer awareness with the sale of Wexco wiper blades and participation in The Mad Hatter’s Hat & Wig Donation Project .  In September, she will relaunch her ever-popular Women’s Car Care Clinics to help educate and empower women to feel confident about automotive preventive maintenance decision-making.

Pat graduated from South Hills Business College and the Paralegal Institute.  She has three children and two grandchildren.  Pat and her husband, Jerry, have been married for twenty-six years and reside in Fairfax Station with their Golden Retriever, Sundance.
