motivating others with humor, inspiration, and
encouragement. She has been presenting since 1985,

individuals to spread their wings and fly!

Joan draws on her Masters in Special Education, Adaptive
Physical Education, and Therapeutic Recreation; her
experience in innovative international wellness and her own
personal hardships, to develop lecture programs, which she
tailors to diverse groups. She educates, empowers, and
entertains while instilling a key life-changing message: No
matter the hurdles, with creative thinking, perseverance,. and
passion, everyone can succeed.

While volunteering in Bolivia and Uganda, Joan was inspired
by people who had positive perspectives and
appreciation of life, despite their major hardships. She
intertwines this strength and perseverance into her
message that obstacles can be overcome!

Joan’s empowering programs are aimed at individuals of all
ages, to whom she brings joy, laughter, and strength to help

Happy Hour Presentation

Is your upside- down cake more down than up? Is your glass half
empty rather than half full? Who says you have to drink to be happy?

Joan’s Happy Hour means laughing your way to stress reduction.
George Burns said it well: “Humor prevents hardening of the
attitudes,”- and maybe the arteries. Join Joan in a laugh- out- loud
presentation that focuses on forming humor habits, lightening up with
her DOT shots: non-alcoholic greeting- card infusions designed to
encourage the message “Don’t Over Think,” and ways to make every
hour in life a “Happy Hour.”
