Our Team

Alix is a former fabricator turned artist. His work is on display at Joe’s and consists of watercolors, colored pencils, graphite, and his latest creations of scrimshaw & bone carvings.  Alix also creates kiln-fired glass work using recycled wine and liquor bottles. His love of creating is hereditary. His great-grandfather was a tinsmith, his grandfather a tailor and his father could literally create anything out of any materials available.

Mary finally gets to put to use all her years of wine tastings. Although she enjoys reading, she really enjoys selecting wines for the store. She is the mother of two boys, Hogan and Brannon, who happen to have four legs, rather than two.

Becky is a book lover who has a reading list she will never finish. She is also a firm believer in dance breaks and laughter.

Patty has always loved to read and dreamed of working in a bookstore. Joe’s Place is so much more than she ever imagined, and she feels truly blessed to be a part of this amazing place.

Anne polishes words when she isn’t slinging coffee and books. A freelance editor and aspiring author hard at work on her second book, Anne is your go-to for all things YA and Middle Grade. She also makes a mean vanilla latte. Just beware the weird with this one–it is strong. Visit her at annepersons.com.
