Joanna Bromley
Chief Operating Officer

Joanna started her career as a waitress in a small fish restaurant outside Boston and continued waitressing throughout college, instilling an appreciation for food service when she was an early teen.  After college she was both an investment banker at Goldman Sachs and spent five years as a management consultant at Bain & Co. A cofounder of Just Bananas, a plant-based “nice” cream company, Joanna’s zeal for using business to make the world a better place is long-standing. She holds an MBA from Harvard Business School and B.S. in Economics from Duke. In addition to her love of yoga (both teaching and practicing), Joanna is a passionate runner, chef-in-training, and ukulele devotee.
