Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking, don’t settle. As with matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as time rolls on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.
— Steve Jobs


I was the principal vendor for the Florida Hospital Memorial Medical Center in Daytona Beach, for which Joanne managed the health and wellness center project. I found her to be extremely “on task” and very focused. She worked tirelessly to get the facility open under deadlines. I observed her involvement with the many details of opening the new facility and her timely interaction with Hospital staff, contractors, vendors and the many stakeholders involved in the project. I saw firsthand her versatile skill set as she managed wellness operations, hired employees, developed protocols for members, provided marketing leadership and engaged the membership.  Joanne has wonderful credentials and is rich in experience in professional fitness operations. She applies this education and experience with a hands-on approach that is necessary to the get the job done right.  She literally goes the extra mile for the organization and the membership.
