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.

From 2018 to current, Joanne devotes time supporting growth and development of entrepreneurs in Bulgaria and by writing website blogs for My Own Business Institute (MOBI) at Santa Clara University’s Leavey School of Business.

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!
