Meet Joanne Brisendine
As a child, Joanne Brisendine moved a lot, but 30 years in North Carolina has made her fall in love with this Tar Heel state. Now, a design consultant here at Furnitureland South, Joanne is thankful that she’s able to use her education from The University of North Carolina School of the Arts and The University of North Carolina at Greensboro to meet people from all over the world. The diversity of people and projects helps keeps her job exciting and fresh.
Joanne has over 16 years of experience in furniture and knows that a person’s home is their retreat from the world. “It’s where they spend time watching their families grow, where they relax, where they entertain,” she said. And when she can help them find the perfect inspirational piece for them, one that creates an aha moment, she considers it a win.
Outside of work, Joanne prioritizes family and traveling. These interests serve as inspiration, but she believes inspiration can be found anywhere – in nature, art, photography, just to name a few.
