Joanna holds an MBA with finance concentration from California State University Fresno and has over ten years of finance and accounting experience. While completing her MBA course work, Joanna partook in a study abroad program in Beijing, China and Hong Kong where she studied international economics and cross-cultural relations. The opportunity to explore the Asian market through immersion allowed for a deeper understanding and appreciation than any book had offered. This experience inspired a desire to find a career with an organization that encouraged and fostered this same type of learning. Joanna oversees all of VIA’s finance, administration, HR, and IT operations to insure cohesion and compliance.
