Steven Nundahl

Hi, my name is Steven Nundahl. I have been with Premier Driving School since February of 2018 and do both behind the wheel instruction and in classroom training. I enjoy teaching our students to drive safely and efficiently on the roadways. Teaching students about the responsibility it is to operate a vehicle on the road is a passion of mine. I recently took a continuing education course and one thing that stood out to me was "Safety is not a job; Safety is a passion!" In the age of distraction, we live in, teaching and preaching safety is very important. I thoroughly enjoy working with our students during this very important milestone in life.

I was born and raised in Kennewick, WA and graduated from Southridge High School. GO SUNS! I graduated in 2012 and married my high school sweetheart in 2016. We live in Kennewick, with our two dogs, River and Oakley. I enjoy all things sports, especially football. I have played football throughout middle school and high school and have even played Semi-pro for the local Tri-City Rage. You will notice lots of Minnesota Vikings merch on my desk/person, do not hold that against me!


Myel Nundahl

Hi! My name is Myel Nundahl. I joined Premier Driving School in October of 2012 and am a Behind-The-Wheel instructor and recently became a Certified Examiner. Working with the teenagers is a lot of fun for me. I like getting to know them and making the driving experience fun for them while maintaining a positive learning environment. Our team of instructors work very well together and have a high level of insight, knowledge and combined teaching techniques. I feel that all students can benefit regardless of their learning or driving capabilities or their comfort level.

I was born and raised in the Tri-Cities & have 2 sons and a daughter-in-law. My oldest son has followed in my footsteps and works as an Instructor/Examiner here at Premier with me. Until recently I enjoyed instructing as a part time position, now it is my only position. I have a combined 12 years in the medical field and many years of experience working in the customer service industry. I love to sing and enjoy karaoke.


Jenny Williamson

My name Jenny Williamson and I am one of the behind-the-wheel and classroom instructors with Premier Driving School. I was born and raised in Tri-Cities and graduated from Kamiakin High School. I played soccer throughout high school before moving on to Central Washington University to play there. I have 2 teenagers, a husband, 2 dogs, and a cat (oh, and a fish. Do fish count as pets?). I currently coach girls soccer and bowling at Pasco High School.

I thrive on positive energy and meaningful opportunities to grow. I believe in the fail to succeed concept and try to instill that in to the students during the course of the classes and drives. I thoroughly enjoy sharing in the excitement with all of our students and building a relationship throughout the course. It is our duty to teach, educate, and join with them in this new adventure into becoming a responsible driver and adult. There are so many chances in life to help and guide teens, and I am so thankful I get to share it with your teen!
