Vice President of Operations Honored at the 2008 Women in Business Luncheon
Joanna Rodgers, Vice President of Operations for Pacific Dental Services, was honored as a nominee at the 2008 Women in Business Awards luncheon hosted by the Orange County Business Journal© (OCBJ©).
The annual OCBJ Women in Business Awards are given to individuals who play a unique role at their company and challenges they’ve overcome. There were over 160 nominees for the Women in Business Awards program this year. The 5 honored nominees were chosen for their accomplishments within their industry, their company, in the community and on a personal level.
Joanna Rodgers started her 14-year career with Pacific Dental Services in 1994, managing the companies’ first dental office. Her tenacity and business acumen helped to spur incredible personal and professional growth as she moved through the ranks from multi-office manager on up to Vice President of Operations for over 60 PDS affiliated dental practices within Southern California and Nevada.
Employees describe Joanna as someone who personally invests in the success of her team members. Not only is she motivated when it comes to her business team, she is equally as dedicated to her family, her husband and 4 sons. She is heavily involved in giving back to the community, as she is involved in not only individual outreach cases within her office regions, but also through corporately sponsored outreach such as annual holiday programs to adopt needy families and annual dental outreach in Mexico and urban areas.
