Joann McDaniel began her administrative career just after college as a financial aid officer at the University of Georgia. The lure of academia, however, was strong, and she returned to school to pursue graduate work in Latin philology. A Rockefeller Fellowship in 1987 allowed her to explore classical archaeology and she forsook philology for the charms of the field. As a field archaeologist, she specialized in small finds analysis and became particularly knowledgeable about artifacts relating to Roman seaports. She has worked at sites in Tunisia, Jordan and Egypt, and has taught at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and at the Intercollegiate Center for Classical Studies in Rome. For three years she worked as map editor for the Barrington Atlas of Greek and Roman World. Her academic work focused on the political aspects of Roman Imperial sculpture. 

Dean McDaniel returned to administration in 2000 when she came to UM to work in Academic Advising at the College of Literature, Science and the Arts. Her commitment to provide creative and original responses to the problems of academic services made her a good fit for her current position at Stamps. As the Assistant Dean for Undergraduate Academic Services, she is happily involved with all the aspects of the Stamps undergraduate experience.
