“You have been such an inspiration to me over the past 9 months.  Your words of encouragement helped me achieve my goals and helped me go way past my comfort zone—for sure.  I know I can always reach out to you, and you will always point me in the right direction.  Thanks again for all that you have done and will continue to do in touching the lives of so many others as well.” – Marilyn Pietri

“Ms. Joi Brown served as our Facilitator for the Executive Speaker Series Virtual Leadership Offsite. Her support throughout the whole process greatly enhanced the Executive Team Building experience delivered to our leadership team. Joi facilitated a powerful team building session utilizing “The Five Dysfunctions of a Team” by Patrick Lencioni. Joi found accessible resources for both team and individual assessments which guided our discussions on the crucial factors that set high performing teams apart. Throughout the discussions, Joi kept us honest on the hard truths of our team scores, delved into root causes and made us face the mirror as a team. Nevertheless, she also emphasized the positives, and highlighted what we excel at. Joi delivered above and beyond what I expected is putting it lightly.” – FEMA Region II Recovery Director

“I worked with Joi through the entire hiring process and she was amazing.  She first talked me through what kind of job I wanted and reassured me through the way that it is attainable (despite my questioning brain) and was my cheerleader the entire way.  She helped tweak my resume for that type of job and helped apply, including the black hole of USAJobs.  All the while, being completely encouraging and telling me I am MORE than qualified.  When I got an interview (which was not happening prior to working with Joi), she helped me prep through potential questions and answers, how to pivot that answers to multiple questions and as a result, I GOT THE JOB! Joi is a professional with HR experience, so she understands what the hiring managers are looking for and how to wow the panel while also reminding me I am also interviewing them to make this the right position for me.  She is enthusiastic, encouraging and SO knowledgeable.  I HIGHLY recommend working with her, particularly if you are in the federal/government sphere, but I’m sure she can help anyone.” – Kelly B.

I got the job and I am officially the Undergraduate Program Coordinator for the iSchool Undergraduate Program! I wanted to pass along a sincere thank you for all of your help to prepare for this promotion.” – Corie Brown
