There is more to database applications than just code and algorithms. It's because of people like JoAnn and her graphic design skills that make them not only functional, but look great too. JoAnn said, "The joke around the office is that the programmers make the systems work, but I make them pretty."
JoAnn enjoys the flexibility of her career and has fun when she can. Her most memorable moments include filling Christmas stockings with gifts for her fellow employees and decorating paper bags for Valentine’s Day.
When she’s not having fun at work, JoAnn spends time with her husband Jason and two pets, Annie, a 150-pound American Mastiff and Lucy, a black cat from Lucky Day Animal Rescue, who was living in Spud Owner Derek Sommer’s office prior to being adopted by JoAnn.
JoAnn is very active in ministry. She served for two years as a volunteer missionary in Argentina and now attends Trinity Assembly of God in Mt. Morris with her husband.
She enjoys biking during the summer with her dad, reading, writing and watching superhero movies. Her favorite movies include the original Star Wars trilogy and Phantom of the Opera. She also enjoys relaxing to contemporary Christian music as well as instrumental/classical music.
