After spending the early part of her career in finance, Joanne decided to pursue her love of creativity. After obtaining a Visual Communications degree, she built up a successful design company, Jolt Graphics. Working closely with many realtors, builders & interior designers, real estate became an interest and is now a passion, Joanne obtained her REALTOR® licence and has never looked back. With her graphic design and marketing background, her ability to connect with people and her love of the real estate market, Joanne has found her niche. Continually eductating and pushing herself to be the best she can be is part of her daily routine. Joanne loves the challenges and continued learning experiences that realty brings. On a personal level, Joanne has been married for 25 years to her husband, and has two grown children. When she's not with clients, you will often find her running in the beautiful parks and trails around Calgary, reading a good book and spending time her friends & family.
