Since 2001 I have been coaching independent professionals and small business owners who don’t fit the mold of the traditional go-getter, encouraging them to discover their unique pathway to satisfaction and success in business.

Career Synopsis

My background includes 30-plus years engaged in personal and professional development, business administration and management, health benefits, human resources and career development. I used to be embarrassed by my apparent inability to identify one career path and stick to it, until I realized that the best jobs keep me engaged when I am able to keep learning new things and and can enjoy working with good people. My past experiences include retail bookstore management, financial coaching, employee benefits, personnel management, staff training and development, and small business ownership.

If you’re looking for someone who understands the challenges of balancing your business life while dealing your personal … situation, Joan is the person whose wise counsel you need. Not only does she understand, she communicates hope and success.
