“It brings me great pleasure being able to do what I love and create a space for others to do the same. Being the only Black woman on the production team has always been normal, but I’m hopeful that I will change soon. As a creative producer, my goal is to bring out the best in the people I work with and learn something new every day. Forethought and flexibility are my superpowers.” ~ Joanna White-Oldham
