Joe is a life-long St. Louis resident. After attending St. Mary’s High and Forest Park Junior College, he traveled north to the University of Iowa on a baseball scholarship.
Returning back to St. Louis he taught in various school districts for five years. Looking to start a family, he decided to give property and casualty insurance a try. After working as an agent with two direct-writing property and casualty companies for a year, he joined a small independent agency in South City. After five years as a minority partner, he started his own firm – Independent Brokers Agency.
Along the way he has been fortunate to have had the opportunity to meet and work with clients from many different professions and backgrounds — many of whom are now friends. Joe enjoys the opportunities and challenges that serving his clients brings. To him that makes the insurance industry just as exciting as it did in 1979.
