JoAnn is an amazing, intelligent, and motivated individual. She is a person in Pittsburgh that you should know.

She is that rare blend of analytical mind, creator of Award Profiles, and well connected individual. We recently worked with JoAnn to create Award nominations for three people. Her ability to interview the candidates and write compelling profiles made the award process simple and very effective. The final award package was incredibly concise and professional.
