Joanne worked for many years as the secretary in human resources, as well as a front desk manager in the dental field. She brings her professional skills and welcoming nature to our studio, as well as her passion for sewing and costuming. Joanne has been altering dance costumes since 2008. In addition to her costume work, she currently volunteers as the costume maker for St. Paul Catholic High School's performing arts department, where she has costumed over 20 shows since 2010. Joanne also has a home sewing and embroidery business, and when she isn't behind a machine, you can find her puttering around her gardens or bird watching.
