Joanna Quintrell is the founding Director of Journey Center Santa Rosa. She currently serves as the Executive Director of the Journey Center Association (supporting those birthing Journey Centers in other locations) and is the co-director of their 2-year Spiritual Director Formation Program. It was in the year 2000 that Joanna found herself in a spiritual crisis and first learned about spiritual direction. Her own experience of meeting with a spiritual director was life-changing and heart-transforming, as she learned how to nurture her own inner life with God. After a few years, she felt a calling to serve others as a spiritual director and was initially trained at the Mercy Center in Burlingame, CA in 2003 (one-month intensive). Joanna has been serving as a spiritual director since then and received additional training through the 2-year program at the Center for Spiritual Direction in Chicago, IL. Joanna loves to hold sacred space for those seeking a deeper experience of the Holy. She is also a certified Enneagram teacher and oversees the Enneagram Series at Journey Center Santa Rosa.
