Academic Fieldwork Coordinator/Senior Lecturer, Master of Occupational Therapy
Joanna lives in York, PA with her husband. She always felt "sick" as a child but around puberty, the symptoms got a lot worse and included pain, fainting, GI issues, and bad headaches. After 8 long years, she finally got diagnosed with Hyperadrenergic POTS, Mast Cell Activation Syndrome, and Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. With the right medications and lifestyle adaptations she is trying to live her best life. Joanna enjoys helping to educate others and providing support to the newly diagnosed.
