Meet Joanna, Your Patient Education Liaison

PEL, Joanna

My Experience

I became a registered nurse 14 years ago, and have worked in patient education at all levels of my career.

My Inspiration

I was inspired to become a Patient Education Liaison when I learned that I could help educate patients with a rare disease.

Why I Love What I Do

I love what I do because it gives me the opportunity to help raise awareness of a rare disease and gives me joy that I am helping people—both directly and indirectly.

My Superpower

My superpower is listening, because I believe that everyone deserves to be heard.

Favorite Things

I love to be outdoors—for travel, sporting activities, and trips to the zoo.

My own experiences really play a large part in how I deliver education to patients and their families.
