I moved to Manalapan in 1992 after growing up in Canarsie, Brooklyn. When I first came to Manalapan, I worked in Investment Banking in New York City, making me experienced with commuting from the Manalapan area.

I have been a licensed Realtor Associate since 2007, giving me the distinction of having only worked in the most challenging real estate environment my generation has ever known! The unsurpassed level of dedication, care and concern I invest in every transaction has allowed me to consistently exceed my goals, achieving the New Jersey Association of Realtors prestigious Circle of Excellence Award for the last four years, the Weichert Realtors Million Dollar Sales and Marketing Award every year of my career, as well as earning numerous recognitions within my office.

I am married with two beautiful daughters, each having excelled in the Manalapan-Englishtown Regional School District. We have also had the opportunity on the high school level as provided by the Monmouth County Vocational School District. I am an active parent in their lives and especially enjoyed serving for many years as a Girl Scout Leader.


I am a lifelong resident of New Jersey having grown up in Linden. I graduated from Kean College with a B.A. in Sociology. Upon graduation, I began a long career working in the Customer Service field. With my understanding of people and keen attention to detail, I bring 30+ years of experience to my Real Estate clients.

I settled in Manalapan from Middlesex County in 1996 and got my Real Estate license in 2003. My dedication, focus and professionalism have allowed me to achieve a high level of success. I have achieved the New Jersey Association of Realtors prestigious Circle of Excellence Award for 2010 - 2012 and have earned the Weichert Realtors Million Dollar Sales and Marketing Awards every year since 2004.

I am married with one son who received his B.S. degree in Computer Science from Stevens Institute of Technology. I had been actively involved in the Manalapan Baseball Association and the Manalapan High School Marching Band for many years.

Together, we strongly believe in continuing education in our industry as evidenced by the professional designations we have achieved.

We are community driven and have proudly shown our spirit by chairing the Weichert Realtors Manalapan Day Committee. We serve on the Monmouth County Association of Realtors Associates Committee, working to find ways for local Realtors to give back to their communities. In addition, JoAnna currently holds appointed positions on Manalapan Townships Zoning Board and The Economic Development Committee.
