Joanna believes that greater understanding builds a better world. As the first point of contact for clients interested in P’unk Avenue, she launches the process of understanding the unique needs of each partner and matching them with services that can help achieve their goals. 

Joanna developed a nack for building partnerships through a career in international development. After serving in the Peace Corps in Ethiopia, she earned a Masters in Public Affairs from Princeton University. From there, she focused on supporting early-stage clean energy projects in East Africa at the U.S. Trade and Development Agency. 

When not at P’unk, Joanna spends a lot of time in the kitchen, cooking and eating with family and friends. She’s usually reading at least three books at a time and occasionally starts writing novels. She is a loving co-parent to Rigatoni, a poodle-schnauzer mix
