1993 and Joan was the HR Manager for JM San Diego. I had recently exited the Army and interviewed with Joan for a Security position at JM. Joan was very kind and connected with me on a personal level seeing that I was a bit nervous after only knowing the military system. I got the position and work at JM to this day. Joan was always one to give you a "kick" when warranted as well as a "kiss" when you earned it. Tons of respect for this kind and smart woman. My condolences to her family and friends.
