Joanne joined Kimmel & Associates in 2007, bringing with her more than 25 years of experience in recruiting and sales. She is now a Senior Recruiter in the General Construction Division. Joanne also specializes in the disaster restoration industry.
She earned a BA in Marketing from Pace University. Upon graduation, she began a career in retail store management before moving into print advertising in Westchester, NY.
Her successes in sales led to a recruiting career in Fairfield County, CT, before Joanne and her husband of more than 30 years decided to make the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina home.
Within her first year at Kimmel & Associates, Joanne quickly established strong working relationships in the energy/industrial market. Hard work and diligence during this time led to her reception of top company honors for success within her industry. Most recently, in 2019 she received the Recruiter of the Year award.
Outside of the office, Joanne and her husband enjoy many varieties of music and art throughout the Asheville area and spend time with their dogs and cats in their quiet mountain home.
