I've been in the car dealership industry since October 2000 after moving back to Birmingham from the Baldwin County area. I married Jerry Joyner in April 2013, inheriting three step daughters and seven step grandchildren, one of whom, a ten-year-old granddaughter, lives with us. I have a deep interest in politics and I volunteered for a grassroots organization from 2001-11. In 2012, after the death of my only child shortly after his birth, my husband and I started a state-wide Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness campaign (Levi's Legacy) in which former Governor Bentley issued a Proclamation naming October 2016 as Pregnancy and Infant Loss month for the state of Alabama. We are working toward a Federal Proclamation in 2017 and also run a small animal rescue, Levi's Haven, from our home.
