“From last minute projects to desperate calls for help, Kevin is consistently the go-to person for assistance,” said Aaron Peterson, a sales manager in Brokerage Services. “He has a willingness to work on anything that crosses his path and repeatedly does more than what’s required by his job description.”

Stelma, a native of Ohio, has lived in Jacksonville for 20 years. In her spare time, she enjoys following the Jacksonville Jaguars and going to the beach.
