Joan Snoderly

A love for all things finance

Financial Information Office - Staff

A love for all things finance has led Joan Snoderly to various roles in the Haslam College of Business including her current position as business manager in the college’s financial information office.

Snoderly began her career in the college as a student and quickly found a second home on campus working within the Center for Business and Economic Research (CBER). She left CBER for a short period of time to be the business manager for the College of Engineering, but returned in 2012 as director of the Tennessee State Data Center. She found her passion for financial responsibilities in this role which eventually led to using those skills in her current position.

Snoderly loves being a problem-solver and a resource on campus. “My position as business manager in the financial information office allows me to interact with faculty, staff and students,” she says. “I provide answers and solutions that hopefully allow others to do their jobs more efficiently.”

Though fanatical about finance, it is the culture and community at Haslam community that has kept her here over the years.

“I value all the friendships I have built in the college,” Snoderly says. “I appreciate that everyone really cares about each other. I take great pride in being a member of the Haslam family.”

Snoderly’s passion and dedication goes beyond her work for Haslam. She is currently the co-chair of the Big Orange Family campaign, donating her time and resources to ensure the continual growth of the college.

Snoderly and her husband, Tim, are both Knoxville natives. Her family includes two children, three grandchildren and “one and a half dogs” (hers and one that belongs to her son but visits often).

Snoderly can be found on campus, not only working in her office but also hosting crafting classes for anyone who wants to learn. “I have worked at the university for 31 years,” says Joan. “I’ll need to be kicked out the door.” Her affinity for UT and the Haslam College of Business makes her a true Vol for Life.
