Career journey: Joanna Mueller
Joanna Mueller graduated with a degree in tourism management in December 2019.
After being laid off during the pandemic, Mueller found a home at Peek, where she built relationships and helped others stay in business.
“COVID-19 has made things hard, especially for local businesses, but the fact that there was a technology provider there to help cover for them and help them figure out how to stay in business speaks volumes,” she said. “That’s one of the reasons I love being at this company.”
Mueller advises students to “be willing to think outside the box.”
“A lot of people who are at my company now have no experience in technology or sales, but they do in tourism,” she says. “Don’t be scared to do something new. Just go for it.”
