Joanne was born in Oregon and has a Journalism degree from the University of Oregon. After venturing down several different career paths with a long break in between to raise three sons, she landed in Financial Aid in 2012 and has been there ever since. Joanne truly enjoys working with students to help them navigate the world of financial aid.
When she’s not working, you can find her getting ready for the next 5K, or going for a hike or camping, if the weather is nice. And, recently, she discovered snowshoeing and long lost downhill skiing skills.
