Community Leader

Joanie has been involved with Reading Power since the organization’s earliest days. First as a volunteer tutor and then as an Assistant Site Coordinator. In 2022, after 19 years on the Reading Power staff, she joined the Board of Directors and still enjoys tutoring one day a week. Joanie is a former educator, with an undergraduate degree in Education and a Master’s degree in Reading, both from the University of Wisconsin Madison. Several years ago, she had the opportunity to go on a mission trip to Chennai, India, where she worked with teachers instructing them on how to teach reading. Joanie is passionate about helping gift the joy of reading to children because she has been blessed to witness how it changes lives.
