Our Team

Joey Conover

Joey grew up three blocks from the Downtown Mall and remembers the lunch counter at Woolworths. She also helped oversee its transformation into a copper-clad retail store. A graduate of Wesleyan University (Latin American Studies) and the Darden School of Business, she is a licensed real estate agent at Nest Realty. At Latitude 38, she manages all financial, operating and marketing aspects of rental properties, renovations and new construction. As past President of the Clark Elementary Parent Teacher Organization and the Coaltion for Economic Opportunity, Joey seeks to find ways to make our community more livable for everyone. She still finds time to scrape together dinner for Jeff and their two middle school girls (most days).
