WHO WE ARE
Joanne S. Martin, MA, CPC
Joanne’s diverse career and life experiences create ideal conditions for clients to explore personal transformation and major life transitions. Whether serving as a coach, mentor, or consultant, she is guided by her own evolving ecological identity. In these times of intersecting crises, Joanne believes that an ecological ethos must guide our personal, professional, and community relationships.
Joanne has diverse business experience. Her early work in international finance supported later career positions in commercial lending and then as co-founder and President of an international metals import company. Throughout Joanne’s career, she operated in systems that were inconsistent with stewardship for the natural world. This inspired her to obtain a master’s degree in ecopsychology to create meaningful change towards a more regenerative world. She has coached business executives, led wilderness self-sustainability retreats, and now her consulting is focused on mobilizing green economic development.
Joanne is a certified professional coach and trained extensively at the Gestalt Institute of Cleveland to build group facilitation and conflict resolution skills. Her home is in a rural location where she spends time growing food, tending animals and deepening her relationship with the other-than-human world.
