Joan has been with Bridgehaven since: October 2019

Background: Bachelors of Science – Conservation Management and Public Administration. Currently pursuing Masters of Public Administration Certified Public Manager. 20 years experience in public and private non-profit management and fundraising. Youngest of twelve children, raised in rural Cedar Rapids area.

Life at home: I live in Walford with my husband, Bob. I have a stepson named Andrew (wife Ashley and their daughter Addison), “my” daughter named Olivia, stepdaughter named Zoey, and our son named Dominic. We have four cats and enjoy our kids’ activities (band, chorus, equine sports, playing outdoors just to name a few).

To me, Cedar Rapids is: Brucemore, Newbo, city parks system, city pools, Indian Creek Nature center, track meets at Kingston stadium.

Why I’m passionate about what I do: Christ created in me a heart for His people – I love to meet others where they are at, to share what Christ has taught me and what I have learned from the path Christ has me on, and to learn from others. I am passionate about bringing together people and supporting all in knowing the love, joy and peace that Christ intends for us all in this life. The life-affirming mission of Bridgehaven is 100% about the love, joy and peace of Christ and the truth that Christ intends this for ALL. I am blessed to be able to walk with Bridghaven on this path!
