Design Concepts After Hours on Thursday, June 28: VBL is Dead

Marketing Communications Director

Joan Neeno

Present

Past
Director of Marketing & Public Relations – St. Mary’s Janesville Hospital
Consultant – MoJoan Communications
Senior Account Executive – Hiebing

Passion
I love creating communications that engage and inspire. Writing and helping others with their writing is my particular passion. Working with smart, creative and kind people is such fun. It gets me out of bed in the morning.

Play
I play keyboard and sing with a rock band made up of doctors called The GoDeans. My husband, Richard, and I also own a restaurant called Lark just a couple blocks from our home. So what am I talking about, free time? When I’m not doing all of that or “projects” around my century-old house, I’m developing cocktail recipes for Lark's bar.

What is your first memory of design thinking?
I was a Barbie freak. My bedroom had a linen closet that I turned into a Barbie skyscraper with apartments on every shelf (over the sheets and blankets). My mom was a very tolerant woman!
