Her experience spans across various categories on brands such as Best Buy, State Farm, Carnival Cruise Line, TurboTax, ConAgra Brands, Comcast, MillerCoors, MINI, Lavazza, Santa Margherita, and Florida Blue.
Account Services is a department that gets to be involved and touch all aspects of the agency and work. I liked that you can be a business leader, but also have a strategic side, as well as a creative side. I’ve invested so much time in honing my skills that I can’t imagine doing anything else. I truly love what I do.
Building a successful department from the ground up.
Relentless passion and determination for doing the best possible work.
A Llama-corn. Mic drop.
A mix of internal and external factors. Sometimes we can be our worst enemy and harshest critic limiting ourselves. There is also a lack of mentorship from other women in leadership roles; which is why I make it a personal goal to develop and mentor my team. You can hear me speak about creative women in leadership roles on 5/19 for The One Club Miami chapter.
If you know me, you know this is a trick question. At work. But I do enjoy a nice bike ride along the beach (if I’m not at work).
I already have one — my memory.
A manduka mat and boxing gloves.
Trust your intuition. Don’t fear failure, because it’s not even an option.
At an early age, I was fortunate to travel a lot with my family and it just became part of my DNA. Getting out into the world to see and experience different cultures is so enriching.
That depends on the role, but must-haves are passion, drive, and a positive attitude. Persistence and consistency are always great too.
Having started my career in above the line agencies, I never really got to experience what we produced. It was a digital ad or a TV spot, but at TEAM we actually create experiences from idea to execution. It’s extremely rewarding to see our finished product and how consumers engage with our client’s brands. We give people memorable moments and meaningful experiences.
Here we go with the trick questions again. However, this time I’ll admit that I’d attend my yoga sessions more regularly.
Joanne now resides in beautiful Ft. Lauderdale and is happy to have returned home to Florida, where she spends time with her parents, brother, niece, and nephew. She likes to explore and travel to new and exciting destinations, and when she’s not at work, she’s planning her next big adventure.
