We’re thrilled to introduce the newest member of our account management team! Joanna Wong comes to Wonderist Agency with over five years of experience in marketing and communications. Although she’s spent the last eight years in San Diego, she is a San Francisco native who prefers beaches and Mexican food over perpetual fog and peacoat weather.
She earned her B.A. in Advertising and Marketing from San Diego State University, and built the foundation of her career in a variety of communications roles, dabbling in everything from copywriting and public relations to graphic design, email marketing, and more. Beginning in the nonprofit industry through national organizations such as the YMCA and United Way, she learned to wear many hats, which has helped tremendously since she entered the agency space in 2016.
In her free time, Joanna powers through fiction novels and blocks of cheese in single sittings, loves leg day at the gym and secretly aspires to fulfill her destiny as a crazy cat lady (can you ever really just stop at one?). She continues her nonprofit involvement through volunteering for Core Paws, bringing awareness to hard-to-place animal adoption cases.
