Joan Finley, Office Administrator, started her career at 18 working with lawyers.  She attended Katherine Gibbs Secretarial School and then went on to obtain her Bachelor’s degree in Organizational Management from Palm Beach Atlantic University.  While working full time with three small kids, she earned her MBA from Florida Atlantic University with a specialization in Legal Compliance.  Her career has taken her from the private law firm sector working for a large Florida law firm into working for the government as the Legal Office Administrator at the Office of Counsel at the South Florida Water Management District where she worked on the Office of Counsel Management Team and supervised all support staff.

She returned to private sector when her husband, Christopher Finley’s law office expanded, and he needed her skilled management assistance.  They have been working together ever since, happily growing the firm.  In addition to her duties at the Law Office of Finley Stetson, Joan is a realtor with Buy the Shore Realty.  When she’s not at the office, our Jersey girl enjoys volunteering at her children’s school, The Crossroads Club, and just about every other organization that she can’t say “no” to!
