Joanie joined the firm in July 2014 as Administrative Assistant and has recently added legal assistant duties, working alongside our lawyers and paralegals. Her responsibilities include a little bit of everything: scheduling, managing CLE and CE seminars, lawyer calendars, and docketing/filing. Joanie is a 1987 and 1988 graduate of Georgia Tech with a Bachelor’s and Master’s in Industrial Engineering and enjoyed a wonderful and challenging career with Carter’s Childrenswear. After the birth of her third child, she “retired” and got involved in fundraising and development, where she worked for Immaculate Heart of Mary School and then The Catholic Center at Georgia Tech. Joanie is a dedicated volunteer at Immaculate Heart of Mary Church, Lakeside High School, and Mustard Seed Communities.
