After 10 years in corporate marketing, Joey transitioned to consulting and freelance graphic design so she could work from home while her kids were young.  She has worked with Erie UpLink in one form or another since its founding and we are thrilled to welcome her to the board in a more robust role. Her creativity and vision help bring our story to life.
