Since leaving the FCO in 2013, Joanna has been using her skills to connect people; in particular she's been supporting graduates by opening doors that may lead to employment. Supporting Adopt an Intern is, therefore, a very natural fit for her whilst she develops her textiles hobby into a business.
Joanna studied French and Russian at Exeter and has worked in Warsaw, Damascus and Lisbon. She developed a taste for fundraising working at CHASE Children's Hospice and for administration at Pennthorpe School. Showing true entrepreneurial spirit she also set up a gardening and picture framing business with her husband. Based in England, she not only brings her many skills to the table, but also her enthusiasm for helping people to reach their potential.
