Communication is the key to good lasting Relationships

Have Tea with Me, every Thursday night at 6:30 pm on a journey to becoming our AUTHENTIC Self.

JoAnn Salamone was born and raised in Little Falls, New York where she met her husband of thirty-six love-filled years and raised their five wonderful children.   She received her degree in education and communication from the State University of New York at Oneonta and is currently self-employed as an Independent Consultant specializing in conflict resolution and communication.

JoAnn has worked in the nonprofit sector for over twenty years, first with Catholic Charities of Herkimer County where she authored a school–based conflict resolution/ bully prevention program for rural youth known as the TREATY Program, as well as serve as the Program Director for the Herkimer County Prevention Council.  After nineteen years of developing programming for youth, she decided it was time to take her knowledge and experience in human relations to the business sector. In 2010, she was given the opportunity to work with the Panera Foundation, the nonprofit arm of Panera Bread, in their Cares Cafes of Shared Responsibility.  Over the past 3 years, she has developed programming for their cafes dealing with dignity, shared responsibility, food insecurity, and de-escalation.

Aside from her work with Panera Cares, JoAnn has begun development on a new program for youth.  The EYES Program (Engaging Youth Encouraging Service) takes a shared responsibility approach to education and is an interdisciplinary education model that connects students to the environment, their community and the role of service in the community.  It promotes accountability, stewardship, and the value of meaningful work.
