Jean Duvall-Carmichael is a former banker and current marketing contractor with Skipper & Skipper. “Jeannie” retired from banking, then a couple of years ago, she agreed to put her time and banking associations to the test by marketing for the firm. Jeannie loves boating, family life (including her adored granddaughter) and re-connecting with the professionals whom she served during her many years in the Pasco County banking community.
It’s difficult to catch up with Jeannie, but if you’d like to find out more about the firm, she can be reached at: Jeannie@skiplaw.org
Sandra L. “Sandy” Delancey has lived in the Pasco area since 1972, and has been a permanent part-time contractor with Skipper & Skipper since 1999. She has a diverse background in the law and elsewhere, which allows her to fill in wherever and take charge as needed.
Sandy is a licensed real estate broker and owner of D-Land-C Real Estate, holds a cosmetology license, and she is one of the first females in Florida to obtain, and still maintains, a Florida State Residential Building Contractor’s license.
At S&S, Sandy fills many roles, but mostly serves in the probate administration division. She became a Florida Registered Paralegal in the Summer of 2008, and can be reached at: Sandy@skiplaw.org
Sherry L. Joiner has lived in Pasco County most of her life and is a graduate of Gulf High School. She is the youngest of five children and, until joining Skipper & Skipper, planned to continue the family business. Since October of 2000, her experiences of formerly being self-employed have been invaluable to Sherry as she organizes the day-to-day functions of a busy law firm. In addition to being the “organizer”, she drafts estate planning and real estate documents.
Sherry has been married for more than twenty-five years to the love of her life, and they have two children. Her son, who holds a college degree as a diesel mechanic, is employed with the school system; and Sherry’s daughter, who recently married, is currently employed with Pasco County, also. The entire family loves the outdoors, hunting, four wheeling and competition fishing. When not engaged in those outdoor activities, Sherry somehow finds time to be an accomplished seamstress, and adoring grandmother.
Sherry became a Florida Registered Paralegal in the Summer of 2008, and she can be reached at: Sherry@skiplaw.org
Daphaine McLean is one of the contractor specialists at Skipper & Skipper, having taken an early retirement from the health insurance field years ago. In 2012, Daph offered her contractor services to the firm, where she is one of three retired - but not ready to stay home - persons associated with S&S. Family is a huge priority with her, as it should be. Daph is intimately involved with the lives of her children and grandchildren. Her son holds a Bachelors degree in music engineering and arrangement. The shining star in Daph’s life is her gorgeous and exciting mother, who divides time between her native Cayman Islands and the US.
It’s hard to describe all the S&S tasks assumed by Daphaine McLean because they are not set. She steps in where needed, and those steps change almost daily. If you’d like to reach her, then email to: Daphaine@skiplaw.org
Florence Pratt is both the newest addition to the S & S team, and the most senior. After selling the family business, Florence filled her time with children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Her favorite volunteer activity was time spent with the Pasco Pregnancy Center. Having been a marketing advisor for Skipper & Skipper for several years, she has now become a regular in her new position in charge of closed files disposal. Florence spends as much time as she can at the firm, keeping two shredding machines going at one time, and occasionally taking a break from her work for a hug from her daughter, Sherry.
