JoAnne rejoined SVA in 2007, after a previous ten-year employment with the company. She earned her BS from the University of Washington, is a Notary Public, and belongs to the American Institute of Professional Bookkeepers. She has one cat named Spurgey, who used to enjoy coming to work every day until he met the office dogs, and regularly volunteers for Seattle Area Feline Rescue. JoAnne enjoys spending time with her family and friends, antiquing, and knitting. Her husband will not let her knit anything for him, though. She’s a little miffed at that.
