I have spent 25+ years as a producer, manager, creative career coach and entrepreneur in the entertainment industry working with hundreds of artists. I am actively producing new work.
I understand how difficult it can be to navigate this competitive and often arbitrary business that is constantly telling you “No, or “Its too hard” while staying true to your authentic self in the process.
It is my joy and honor to help you empower yourself, connect with your true creative vision and step into your entrepreneurial self to bring your career or creative project to the next level.

What Clients Are Saying...
“I needed somebody to help me both focus and find my direction. The truth of the matter is in working with Joanne the universe opened and the collaborators have made an appearance -I’ve got four plays in various stages of development now working with four different directors.”
Playwright and Author
“Working with Joanne has been a pivotal part of my career development. As a writer/director, there’s growing in the craft and also growing as an entrepreneur. Building a career in the arts is challenging; it has helped me tremendously to have Joanne journeying alongside me.”
Madeline M. Johnson
Joanne, thank you many thousand times over for the collaboration, support, inspiring work, and the kind of creative possibility that comes from feeling like you truly have someone forging forward with and for you.
Naomi McDougall Jones
“For me as a writer, not having a “team” to talk with is among the most difficult challenges. Networking creative people who might benefit from being in touch is a hallmark of working with Joanne as a coach. Another is having a supportive, yet frank source of feedback, not just for my creative work but also for work-related dilemmas or decisions.”
Screenwriter, Playwright, Librettist
Joanne is a master at helping creative clients to refine their vision and find their target audience. I am pleased to recommend her without reservation to fellow artists who are ready to take their work to the next level while staying true to their highest intentions.”
“I want to thank you again for all your guidance, I could not have come to this book without you. It was your coaching that brought me to the level of a book ready to be published and it gave me the courage to finish it and get it out there!”
