Joan can recall being concerned about overpopulation as a young child, when world population was only 3 billion. She was taught by her Catholic parents to care about others and help the needy. It became readily apparent to her that we would never be able to help all of the needy if population continued to grow. Before going into semi-retirement in 2013, she worked as a programmer and in tech support. She's excited to be part of the WPB team and working on this vital cause.
