Bogi Lateiner is one of the hosts of Velocity's reality series "All Girls Garage."

Bogi Lateiner is an ASE Certified Mechanic and the founder and owner of 180 Degrees Automotive, a full-service auto repair shop in central Phoenix. With no previous business experience and no automotive upbringing, she took the company's carport garage through five years of increasing horsepower, eventually clocking in sales at over $1 million per year, hiring six full-time employees, and purchasing and renovating a $1 million state-of-the-art, green-optimized service facility.

Before 180 Degrees Automotive, Bogi worked in the field for six years as a Master Certified BMW mechanic. Her first car experience came in the shape of an old Volkswagen bug when she was just sixteen years old. Multiple trips to the repair shop, however, left her hating the way she'd been treated and feeling anxious. She enrolled in her school's auto shop. With the help of a few good mentors and a couple good books, she completed a ground-up restoration of her beloved bug, building her confidence in the process.

Bogi graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Ohio's Oberlin College, in just three years, with a double major in Women's Studies and Pre-Law, and a minor in Politics. She then graduated from Universal Technical Institute and went job-hunting. It was a difficult time and work was elusive, but it increased her compassion for women in the auto industry. As the pieces came together, she began to see that her passion was not simply to fix cars, but to empower others to fix cars — women, especially. By educating others on the basics of auto repair, promoting women within the industry, and creating a healthier relationship between cars, their owners, and the automotive process, Bogi ventured far beyond her comfort zone.

In addition to operating and managing 180 Degrees Automotive, Bogi teaches car-care classes for women. She also leads automotive workshops, does personal and business coaching, and makes presentations on a wide range of automotive and business topics all over America.
