Before becoming an Account Director at KPR, Joann spent years honing her skills in the worlds of public relations, politics and black-diamond skiing. She also speaks fluent German and loves hatha yoga, first introduced by Yogi Swatmarama in the 15th century, or was it Yogi Berra?
You would think advertising/marketing firms would be good at boosting their own image, but it turns out they need public relations experts, too. Joann was one of them when she entered the world of PR after a stint in politics and government.
Her time in campaign fundraising, navigating the halls of Congress as a congressional aide, and as a spokesperson for the U.S. Department of Energy taught Joann to expect the unexpected and exceed high expectations.
She graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder with degrees in Political Science and International Affairs.
