Joann Asakawa Huntz
educator, fundraiser, and Furmom in Littleton, Colorado
I am an educator and fundraiser living in Littleton, Colorado. I received my BA in Philosophy from the University of Colorado and my MA in Museum Studies from Johns Hopkins University.
My passion for the arts and education have given me the opportunity to work at amazing museums like the Denver Art Museum, Clyfford Still Museum, and Sangre de Christo Arts and Conference Center. With a particular focus on arts access, I also developed and implemented the art curriculum for Possibilities, a program for adults with varying developmental disabilities through Discover Goodwill of Southern and Western Colorado.
I am thrilled that the next steps in my career allow me to pursue these passions through philanthropic fundraising efforts for many wonderful nonprofits as the Manager of Client Services with Philanthropy Expert.
Outside of work, I am a lover of all things travel, animals, and food! I also try to love running and yoga (sometimes) and do these things with my husband and our two precious furbabies- Bennoit, our one-eyed dog, and Cara, our sassiest of sassy cat.
