                        In November of 2020, while earning her degree at Michigan State University's Broad College, Joann took the first step towards realizing a lifelong dream. For as long as she can remember, Joann has aspired to be a Financial Advisor, following in the footsteps of her father, Ron Shmyr. In 2023, she joined UBS and has quickly become an asset to the Tortuga Financial Group.

The youngest of seven children, when not at work Joann can be found spending time with her family, her fiancé Eric Price, or "Up North" spending time at the family cottage where she and Eric plan to wed this coming summer.
