Joanne Lafave

Joanne knew DS was the right place for her when she first joined a new business pitch. “Lauren told the prospective client group that as an agency, “We don’t date—we like to get married.” I thought to myself, “Wow, that’s how I am!” Yup, 100% in. No holding back. Dedicated—and then some. With 25+ years in marketing and a flair for building strong partnerships, she handles everything from long-range planning to day-to-day projects. Joanne is also committed to the more important things in life: Relationships, both personal and professional. Gardening. Martini recipes. York Peppermint Patties. Decorating. Music. And, of course, singing and dancing while driving: “I was at a red light downtown. Michael Jackson’s Thriller was burning up the charts. The song was blaring through the speakers—windows wide open. I not only sang along, I did the Thriller dance right then and there, in front of a captive audience.”

A recovering Diet Coke fanatic, Joanne has since moved on to seltzer, thanks to a crisis intervention by her colleagues.
