JoAnn Howansky

Director of Business Development

JoAnn joined the Twelve Oaks Recovery team in October 2016 as the Alumni Coordinator & Marketing Assistant and spent over a year creating a robust program of alumni support services for our former clients and supporting the marketing efforts of the organization and the business development team. JoAnn then went on to serve as a local Business Development Representative, cultivating and maintaining positive relationships with key referral sources in the local area. In November 2018, she was promoted to Director of Business Development. Over her time at Twelve Oaks she has grown very passionate about the work that we do and the relationships she’s built with alumni, coworkers, referral sources and colleagues in the field. She enjoys being out in the community sharing about the good work we are doing, collaborating with other providers, raising awareness, and advocating for those needing treatment for substance use and mental health disorders. As a person in long term recovery herself, she is passionate about connecting individuals and their families with resources and giving them hope. She has a background in non-profit outreach and marketing and legal support services. Before joining us, JoAnn served for several years as the Outreach & Marketing Manager for Manna Food Pantries, a non-profit organization in Pensacola, Florida.
