Joanna joined ClientEarth in February 2017 and is based in New York City.
Before joining ClientEarth, Joanna worked as Membership Associate at Wave Hill, a public garden and cultural centre, managing and eventually growing the organisation’s membership and the funds brought in by the program. She began her development career in the education sector, working as a development intern for the University of Chicago, from which she graduated in 2014 with an Honours political science degree, focusing on international relations.
As a UChicago alumna, Joanna remains very active in fundraising for her alma mater and engaging alumni; she is the Programming Chair for the UChicago NYC Board of Directors. Joanna is also very passionate about representing Bulgaria, her native country, within New York City and serves in a fundraising role on the executive committee of Bulgarian Concert Evenings in New York, a nonprofit that puts on free concerts.
In her spare time, Joanna enjoys the New York City fitness scene and training for endurance races.
