Joanne was born in Portland, Maine and has lived in Buxton, Maine her whole life. She has two daughters who have made her life complete and take up most of her time when she is not working. Joanne received an undergraduate degree in Accounting in 1995 and a law degree in 1999. Right after law school, she began working for Pierce Atwood, a law firm in Portland, Maine, where she worked for 17 years. Joanne then started her own consulting business in 2016. She initially started working for The Wolak Group when she was with Pierce Atwood and became even more involved through her consulting business. Although Joanne’s official start date was in December 2019, she has worked with many employees here over the years and is very much looking forward to meeting many more!
