Joanna is from Carnegie, PA, and grew up in the Russian Orthodox Church. Joanna’s family has a strong Russian background and it is through that heritage and God’s love that she has traversed her path in life. She enjoys the liturgy and ceremony of the Russian church, and visits her home church each year for their traditional Easter services.

Before coming to Faith Church, Joanna had a rewarding 20 year career with Exxon Mobil as a Bookkeeper/Accountant and Financial Office Manager, and then as Financial Office Manager/Accountant with a prestigious law firm in Northern Virginia. In 2004, she came to Faith Church to serve as our Office Manager and Financial Secretary.

Joanna resides in Kingstowne with her husband Scott and son Jason, who often helps out with various tasks at the church on his days off. Even though working with numbers is what she does for a living, people are what make her life whole. She loves the opportunity to use her compassion and caring skills to serve the community and the people who come by the church office. Joanna enjoys writing and has had one of her short stories published in Northern Virginia Magazine.
