Joan lives in Brewster, and has lived on the Cape since 1981. A registered nurse, she has worked as a home-visiting health professional caring for people in the place they feel most comfortable. In the course of that work she has come to learn and honor the unique flavor of each town and village on the peninsula. She emphasizes that the ocean is very much, and always has been, a part of her. In particular, she has a very personal connection and commitment to Pleasant Bay, and looks forward to helping guide an organization so committed to maintaining its integrity and beauty.
