Title: Senior Career Counselor
Career Communities: Arts & Communications, Education & Helping Professions, Exploring

Role:    In addition to her work with students, Joanna helps to oversee the Career Center’s  communications initiatives.  Along with her paraprofessional team, she manages the department’s website, social media, digital signs (SCALA), and print publications.


Personal/Professional Background:    Joanna majored in English and minored in religion at Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts, and received her Master of Arts in Higher Education Administration from Stony Brook.  She has been with the Career Center for more than 10 years, and has previous work experience in retail management, book publishing, and residence life.

Fun fact:    If Joanna could have her ideal career, she would act in Broadway musicals… but since her talent probably isn’t up to par, she settles for listening to a lot of cast recordings and attending as many shows as she can.
