Joanne is new to the coffee world, having transitioned from a career in public health. She became interested in sustainability and was fascinated to learn how similar it is to public health, as both fields seek to understand the interconnectedness of people and their environments. Joining the green-coffee industry allows her the opportunity to continue an impactful career looking at the bigger human picture and its moving parts.
Born and raised in San Diego, Joanne enjoys spending her free time exploring the city with her children and partner.

Favorite place you’ve visited: Oahu! It was the first time I could afford to take my parents on a vacation. It was one of my favorite experiences, and they’re still memories that I build on with my parents, kids and partner.
