In 1983 my parents started a marina in the heart of Portage Lakes where I was born and raised. I worked with them until my departure to Miami University where I managed a t-shirt shop catering to the college crowd. After graduating with a business degree I moved to Florida, accepting the position of buyer at a large speciality gift shop.
In 2007 when my parents expanded their marine business, I returned to Ohio to join them in operating the marina and to add a nautical gift shop.
When my parents sold the marina I jumped at the opportunity to pursue my own business dream. My experience with apparel design and buying was the perfect combination with nautical living to create The Savvy Anchor, where we can all Live the Nauti Life.
