“I was hired as executive director of a non-profit organization that Joanne Oppelt had been leading for five years. My transition was made easy by the structured organizational operations and the tight internal controls Joanne had put in place during her tenure as leader. Because our structure was so effective, I was able to get on with the work of fulfilling our mission, serving our community, and deepening our services. It was a joy to follow Joanne in my role!”

“In our collegial interactions over the years, Joanne has always been a consummate professional, very responsive, quick to contribute from her extensive knowledge and experience, yet maintaining a pragmatic grasp on reality. Grounded in integrity, she is driven by a sincere desire to make a difference from the very basic and individual level to the grand scheme of the goal in mind. Not only extremely competent, reliable and honest, Joanne is caring, friendly and fun loving in the process, so she brings out the humanity in all of us. “
