34.L&L – Joanne Kelly Cogdell

Switching career paths is never easy. But Joanne Kelly Cogdell has found Bendable a “huge time saver” in the process. Recently, after 10 years as a teacher, she took a leap and launched a local startup called Naxos Neighbors, an app that connects opioid overdose observers with trained responders. Since then, she has looked to Bendable to gain new skills in leadership, entrepreneurship and IT. “I can learn about what a wireframe is in two clicks, or I can choose to go deeper,” she said. “I love that I have those options.” In time, she hopes to train her responders on Bendable, as well.
