Joan's introduction into the performing arts began in the districts theatre group as a teenager growing up in a Western Australian wheat belt town.
This interest saw her join an amateur theatre company in Fremantle playing to larger audiences and enjoying professional direction.
Whilst living in Melbourne Joan successfully completed a course in acting in front of the camera for film and television.
Joan’s corporate work history has been both varied and challenging with experience in the fitness industry, real estate, tourism and retail.
Since retiring Joan has thoroughly enjoyed the experience gained in commercials and print advertising and is eager for this to be her main focus.
