Cathy Brown (wife of Buddy and mother of Jennifer, Matt, & Joey) keeps Aquatic Sales glued together. She works primarily behind the scenes and takes care of the accounting and daily tasks in the office, while the sales people are out on the road. You may run into her at a trade show or on one of our “fam trips” to Dominica. She loves to play tennis, travel, and dive anywhere in the Caribbean
Joey Brown was born in the Keys and very fortunate to have grown up around the dive business his whole life. He is an SDI instructor, but free-diving is what he enjoys most. Joey has been representing dive/surf/paddle companies since 2007 and is always looking for new opportunities to grow the industry and help his dealers. He also enjoys wake surfing and most recently, kiteboarding.
Jennifer Miller has loved the ocean since living on a sailboat and sailing throughout the Caribbean with her parents. Growing up in the Keys and diving as a youngster nurtured that love and desire to always be near the ocean. Jennifer handles in-house sales and customer service with Aquatic Sales and is enjoying getting back to her roots of diving and the salt life.
