Gender Pronouns: She, her, hers

Joanna grew up in a family engaged in discussing social & economic issues, which inspired her to try to make a difference be it through professional, volunteer or day-to-day interactions.  Joanna feels privileged to be part of the Food Matters team and have the opportunity to contribute towards addressing food insecurity.  She brings 30 years of experience as a policy analyst and then Executive Director with the Government of Manitoba.  Joanna has also served on various community boards including the Women’s Health Clinic, University of Manitoba Board of Governors, Community Legal Education Association and her local community centre.
