Ever wonder about the people behind our delicious pasta?  Who the person is on the other side of the phone when you call? Meet Joann Tapp!!!!

My job title is…

Head Fundraising Noodle!  Momma would have been so proud! And have been here over 19 years.  I was a buyer for a Christmas Shop in 1994 when I first met Carey – The first time I saw the shaped guitar pasta….I wondered if anyone would really buy fun shaped pasta…..and now after 19 years I wonder …who wouldn’t?

The best advice I’ve been given…

Came from my mom. She told me to perform my job as if I own the company. Her father told her and she passed this advice along to me.

Pet or pet peeve?

No pet because I have allergies….can that be my pet peeve…allergies??  If not, my pet peeve is when the neighbors don’t scoop after the poop!

Talent I wish I had….

to sing and anyone who hears me in church wished I had that talent too!

Morning person or night owl?

MORNING!!!   There is nothing like the calmness of the early morning…..with a cup of coffee in hand.

I’m passionate about…

my family and friends – relationships really are what this life is all about….so it is important to make those you love FEEL the love that they deserve.

My best subject in school was…

Micro Economics…. And most business classes…….I may not be the entrepreneur at Fun Pasta but I love helping make it happen!   😀

Working at FUN Pasta Fundraising I’ve learned…

More about Microeconomics!!! Seriously, I have learned it is FUN to help people raise money for the things they are passionate about!  Each day is a new day with happy people…..and helping them is what makes me happy.

Favorite quote is…

“I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.  I can choose which it shall be.” – Groucho Marx.
