Meet our newest coach Joanne Lenweaver.
A life-long student of the entrepreneurial spirit, whether within her women-owned business or other large corporation, Joanne believes in creative problem solving, calculated disruption, and never accepting the status-quo in any situation. Starting in 1985, Joanne with her husband, Dave, guided their design firm of remarkably talented creatives through many award-winning years . Lenweaver Advertising+Design Inc. featured in national media for its innovative use of the first Apple MacIntosh installations in a design firm setting in the US led the way in a new world preceding the current standard, Adobe InDesign. Inspired by the tech explosion of the 1990’s, the firm diversified into FoodWeb® which was one of the first food portals on the Web. Linking almost 2,000 food and food products sites and preceding Google and other search engines FoodWeb® pushed the limits of established web creation at the time. As a result of the immersion into food promotion and data, LA+D, Inc. expanded its expertise in marketing food products to European gourmet cheese. Most recently, in the last year, Joanne, as Director of the WISE Women’s Business Center has taken the Center to a new level by relocating to a downtown location in The Tech Garden to achieve greater branding presence and visibility to its target markets. She currently lives on a scenic organic farm in Fabius, NY with her husband, Dave.
