Founded by JoAnn Ward, the company is now owned and operated by her son Steve Ward out of Palm Beach, Florida. This mother-and-son matchmaking duo gained national acclaim as hosts and executive producers of VH1's Tough Love from 2009-2013. Over six seasons, they transformed the lives of dozens of men and women by helping them find, form and maintain healthy, happy relationships. Their best-selling book Crash Course in Love (Simon & Schuster) and television appearances showcased their thought leadership and area of expertise. With Steven's proprietary technology to prove identity, run background checks, and verify photos, Master Matchmakers now provides personal coaching and professional matchmaking services nationwide.


JoAnn is the Founder of Master Matchmakers who is semi-retired and now enjoys just doing what she's always loved to do most; explain how we work. JoAnn’s foundation rests on her passion for uniting desirable singles in rewarding, long-term relationships. A happily married mother of three adult children, and a grandmother of six, JoAnn has enjoyed all the success in love her clientele only dream of.
