Joanne has a UBC degree in Sociology and a BCIT diploma in Broadcast Journalism. She started her career as a reporter/anchor at Radio NL in Kamloops. Next, her love of wine and the sun brought her to Astral in Penticton where she worked as an Anchor/Co-Host. Other than the BC interior, she has lived in Seattle and Tokyo. She loves talking to everyone and anyone she meets. She spends most of her time with her big family, husband and cat. Weaknesses include french fries, mint flavoured anything (especially coffee) and The Maury Show.
