Joanna is the wife to her middle school sweetheart and mom to four awesome kids. She moved to Utah from Florida in 2014. The mountains were calling. It has been everything her family could have hoped for. While she does miss the beach and year-round suntans, she wouldn’t trade it for the crisp mountain air!

Joanna has a passion for education and loves working to strengthen the Distance Education community. This will be Joanna’s third year working with a distance education program. Working in a classroom has always been a dream of hers. She began her college studies in Middle-Grade Education before taking a break to raise her growing family. She finished her Bachelor of Arts with a Liberal Studies degree form Saint Leo University in Florida.

When not teaching or planning lessons, Joanna loves picnics in the park and date nights with her husband trying new restaurants and exploring Utah!
