Meet Sydney Personally
When Sydney is not working on The Joyner Group projects, she spends her time pursuing her passions of traveling, gardening, painting, and riding motorcycles. They all provide what she describes as “Zen” moments and inspiration – where time is not measured, just experienced and enjoyed. She looks forward to early spring weekends traveling to the local farms and nurseries to add to her already abundant plantings of hydrangeas, heirloom roses, and lavender.
And this coming year a motorcycle trip to the southwest Painted Desert and touring trip to the Tuscany hills in Italy are on the wish list.
