JoAnna grew up near Cleveland, OH and has been around all kind of animals her whole life. Her father would often find pets abandoned outside of his office at the local police station. From dogs to cats to snapping turtles and at one point even a Camon Crocodile joined the family until it found a permanent home at the local zoo (Fun Fact: JoAnna once snuck the crocodile outside to feed it raw chicken and it nearly ran away but was quickly caught and to this day her parents still don’t know…unless they read this bio!). JoAnna has always been passionate about animals, especially caring for the ones who are elderly or disabled.

JoAnna currently fosters rescue dogs with her husband and they enjoy camping and traveling in their free time.
