“One can live magnificently in this world if one knows how to work and how to love, to work for the person one loves and to love one’s work.”

~ Leo Tolstoy

Her many years in healthcare and comprehensive massage training has given her a powerful healing touch. 

Joanne has a strong sense of community. She has volunteered her time for many causes, including, free medical clinics and planting trees with her children at local state parks. During the summer Jo can often be found at a festival, listening to music and participating in her favorite flow arts. She has a deep love for Upstate NY nature with the beautiful lakes and greenery.
