"It's so rewarding to be able to make things easier for patients and their families at a very difficult time,"  says Joan.  "It can often be an overwhelming process and having someone available to provide guidance and assistance is so important and helpful."

In her free time, Joan enjoys yoga, watching movies, reading, and traveling (some of her favorite trips include Italy, Australia, and Portugal). She also loves music - "anything and everything is better if you listen to the Beatles while doing it," she says.
