Joel was born and raised in Iowa.  His father was a minister and his mother was a stay-at-home mom.  His first job was a paperboy and between that and college graduation, he had many jobs that provided a wide range of opportunities.

Joel graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with a BA in marketing at the age of 22 and a year later he married the love of his life.  His professional career began in retail management but shortly afterwards he moved into commercial insurance which he remained with for the next 31 years.  Joel led a very successful business and developed life-long friendships.

At the age of 56, Joel is now retired and spends most of his time with his wife traveling, golfing and enjoying time with his children and grandchildren.

He has always had a passion for helping others and has a strong desire to mentor a youth and giving back the way others have always given to him.
