Meet Joanne Riepl
Joanne came to Wonders of the World with several decades of retail experience. She started working in a small family owned variety store. She then spent 21 years managing the craft department of a bicycle, craft & hobby shop, before finding the perfect job at Wonders of the World Bead Shop. During her initial interview, she and Pamela became aware that they had known each other 30 years before and had worked together then! Pamela was a tremendous influence in Joanne's life at that time and is now, hopefully, reaping the benefits of that influence as manager of the Wonders Bead Shop.
Joanne also brought her husband of 46 years with her to Wonders. Will is our chief photographer, carpenter and general fixer.
