Having grown up on Lake Jordan near Grand Rapids, MI, Elizabeth developed a love for the water very early in life. She was part of an avid boating family and fondly remembers many summers spent enjoying the Great Lakes. Elizabeth helped her father restore their family boat, a 1974 Marinete 32 Cabin Cruiser, and she loved traveling around in it on Lake Michigan and Lake Superior. It was this love of boating that inspired her to come aboard and join the JBYS administrative team. Elizabeth has an extensive background in customer service and sales process management making her a valuable asset to our business office and F&I department. Her dedication to detail and passion for excellence ensures smooth sailing for our buyers and sellers.
