Bev Lutz ICF membership provides incredible professional networking opportunities, professional and personal growth, and opportunities to explore my strengths as I volunteer in service of my profession.  My chapter really helps me stay current with coaching, thought leadership, and learn-n-earn (CEU’s) from professional development events.  But it’s the supportive coach-friends and collaborators who have made membership for me priceless. //

Currently, Joanna is the CEO of Tenacious Transformation Coaching, LLC; employed full-time in a Fortune 50 company; and adjunct faculty at the University of St. Thomas. 


Outside of her paid endeavors, Joanna continues to support people in finding their voice through Toastmasters International, where she volunteers her time with local clubs.
