Joan worked as a Care Coordinator in Alaska, assisting people who received Medicaid Waiver services, for 20 years. Her and her husband relocated to Cottage Grove to be closer to family in the Fall 2019. They have one son, James, a life-long Alaskan, who still lives in Palmer, Alaska.

When Joan is not at work, she enjoys bird watching, camping, volunteering with animals, traveling, and gardening.

Joan is excited about new adventures in Oregon and being part of the Connections team!
