Biography: Joan is a faculty member for the Business Program where she prepares adult learners for careers in management, sales and starting their own businesses. Joan began her teaching career at HTC in the early 1980s long before computers and online instruction. During an 11-year break, Joan applied her teaching skills to the corporate environment. In 2000, she joined Lifetouch, the school picture and yearbook company. She managed the learning and development function where she developed training programs for production, customer service and sales. Joan was responsible for the implementation of the school picture division’s first learning management system, the creation of a leadership institute and the development of a corporate sales training program. In 2011, Joan returned to her roots at Hennepin Technical College. Her experience in management and supporting business leaders to achieve results has enriched what she brings to the classroom.
