Joanne was born and raised in Vermont. She started at PPI as a “fill-in” in 2014, after a career at IBM which spanned 23 years. After IBM, she went from computer chips to chocolate chips, working for 9 years at Vermont Nutfree Chocolates.
She started out by “pitch hitting” in various departments, assisting with systems and getting projects that have been on out to do lists done. She slid into the Receptionist position on a full-time basis in the summer of 2019. Joanne is the voice of Pomerleau, welcoming all visitors, whether in person or on the phone, along with providing administrative support for the company.
Joanne is a crocheting machine; she likes to sew and creates seasonal arrangements for us all to enjoy. If you are looking for our Head of Security, Drama, he can be found at Joanne’s desk … waiting for treats!
In her spare time, she enjoys gardening and working on her family genealogy.
