Joanne began as the Interim Director of Graduate Admissions in February 2014. She and her husband moved to Chicagoland from Cleveland, Ohio in July 2011 to pursue further theological training.

In Cleveland, Joanne was the Catering Supervisor for the Atlanta-based company Chick-fil-A at their Rocky River location. Her years with Chick-fil-A have provided her with invaluable servant leadership experience and opportunities to live out her faith. At Trinity, Joanne has served in a variety of roles within Graduate Admissions since August 2011.

When Joanne isn’t working, she enjoys discipling women, reading, cooking, long talks over coffee, and spending hours around the dinner table with friends.
