Development Department Assistant
Joanna is a Columbia, South Carolina native. Although Joanna completed her undergraduate degree at other colleges (AA from North Greenville and BA from Carson-Newman) she is indebted to the many CIU students who poured into her life as a young person. “I would not be the person I am today without the dedicated and selfless servants who taught me in Sunday School or worked with my youth group. Many of those people have gone on to serve around the world in missions. Because of them, I always knew CIU was a special place.”
After a few years of working in secular jobs and two years teaching overseas, Joanna decided to pursue the Biblical Certificate program in the Seminary at CIU. During the application process someone suggested she that she consider working at CIU as well. She did just that, and began working in the Development department in 2000. During her time here at CIU she has served as data entry specialist, receptionist at 89.7 WMHK, Administrative Assistant to the Chancellor, and most recently Development Department Assistant.
Joanna’s hobbies include spending time with family and friends, attending cultural events, gardening, and traveling (when she has time).
