Joanne Glasspoole's Summary

I am a Joomla developer & consultant, certified social media manager and principal of Indigo Creative Solutions.

I joined the ranks of entrepreneurship in January 2003, after working in Corporate America for 22 years.

In the spring of 2004, I discovered Mambo, which was later re-branded as Joomla in 2005. Since then, my team and I have built a solid reputation on Joomla. In addition to Joomla development, I am well versed in Joomla consulting, search engine optimization and social media marketing.

I am detail-oriented, possess strong organizational skills, maintain sound sales & marketing skills and am blessed with excellent listening & communication skills.

I graduated from Metropolitan State University in 1999 with a BA from the College of Arts & Sciences and was certified by the Social Media Academy in 2011 as a social media manager.

I am an active member of the Alliance Française MPLS/St Paul.
