|Vice President of Marketing|
Joe was born in Nanticoke, PA, many more years ago than he would like to count. His parents, Joe and Anita, were a high school teacher and a state employee who doubled as a union executive. From them, he developed his skill for following the rules and his ability to negotiate. His family then moved to Central Pennsylvania, specifically Selinsgrove. Here is where he grew into a “brainy jock,” being that he was a three-sport athlete, basketball, football, and track, and was a class officer and active member of the National Honor Society.
