My love for the marine industry is deeply rooted in my childhood. We are boaters by nature, and owning boats goes back generations in the Joiner family. I even owned my first boat at the ripe old age of 14. I grew up with stories of my family’s many adventures while enjoying and creating many of my own. Needless to say, boating is my passion.
To dive further, I’ve been a partner in several marines in South Florida, a member of the Winterfest Boat Parade, chairman of the Pompano Boat Parade, and a past president of BoatTown USA. It is safe to say, the boat life chose me.
I also grew up in the insurance industry and have been a licensed agent since college. While developing my career and love for the insurance industry, I saw an opportunity to marry it with my first love, boating. From the onset, I jumped right into learning everything I could about the marine industry, to be its #1 advocate, both in and out of the water.
I intimately understand the unique challenges that face the marine industry, from attracting and retaining the best craftsmen to health choices and lifestyle, to multi-cultural communications. This combined knowledge, experience, and passion have made me an expert!
