In May Joanna will graduate from Eastern University with her M.A. in Organizational Leadership. She loves exploring ideas, absorbing new places and creating interesting dishes to eat! The ideas that interest her most include the intersection of spirituality with leadership and organizational and community development, particularly in the developing world. In 2005 she graduated from Claremont McKenna College, where she researched human rights in Poland and the Czech Republic.
Joanna has worked in large firms but also had her own sole proprietorship for two years. She lives in Manhattan with her daughter Junia and husband Andy, where in her spare minutes she tries to catch up to Andy's swing dancing prowess.
