Joanne has over 30 years’ experience working with local, national and international leaders in diverse business climates as well as individual entrepreneurs engaging in business start-up and growth.

She is now a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) with the International Coach Federation, receiving her Executive Leadership Coaching Certification from the prestigious Hudson Institute of Coaching in Santa Barbara. She is certified in several leadership assessments including the Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQ-i 2.0), Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI®) and Team Diagnostic™ Assessment.
Joanne also offers retreats and workshops specifically for women moving through life transitions: “Energize! Provence”, a women’s retreat to France and “4 Fridays,” a series of workshops. The intent of these offerings is to provide tools and build community support while navigating life changes, personally and professionally.
In 2017, Joanne spent her first sabbatical on a pilgrimage, walking the Camino Frances in Spain. She completed over 400 miles in 32 days! When she wasn’t thinking about blisters and shin splints, she enjoyed the beautiful scenery, rich history, meeting global pilgrims, and the time for self-reflection and renewal.
In 2018, Joanne devoted time in Bulgaria supporting growth and development of entrepreneurs through coaching, presenting and engaging in conversations about emotional intelligence and the role of self-development in success.
Joanne has been described as insightful, engaging, inspiring, pragmatic, committed and funny. She loves working with people and is grateful for the opportunity to do so every day!
