She served eight years on the Sonoma City Council and on numerous community boards and commissions. Currently, she is a board member for the Sonoma County Taxpayers Association, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Man and Woman of the Year Executive Committee and the Sonoma Chambolle-Musigny Sister City Association. By working with clients on a daily basis to strategically hire staff and maintain productivity, Joanne enjoys facilitating job creation throughout the region she calls “home.” She resides in Sonoma, California, with her husband Morgan Sanders and their three children.
