Joan is a certified consumer wellness advocate. She is also certified to deliver the consumer wellness advocate training for The Wellness Registry. Prior to working at The Banyans Health and Wellness, Joan worked both professionally and voluntarily, running community programs for charities for over 20 years. These programs included family mentoring, debt counselling, mentoring at-risk youth, life skills training, and women’s support groups.

Joan brought her extensive knowledge, and passion about infusing kindness and compassion into every situation, to the Banyans when it first opened in 2016. She saw an opportunity to be a part of a team delivering an holistic approach to health and wellness. Joan delights in helping people to grow in understanding themselves and others, and empowering them to realise their potential.

A lover of the great outdoors who enjoys bushwalking, camping, and spending time with her golden Labrador, Buddy, Joan feels privileged to share in the journey of those determined to regain their health and freedom to live their best lives.
