Joan and her husband Kurt have been La Grange residents for 25+ years, and are raising 2 daughters: Charlotte (LTHS '17) and Lillian (Bravura member).
A graduate of the Illinois Institute of Technology, Joan worked in R&D for over 15 years, initially as a software/firmware developer for PBX systems at GTE Labs, then as an Engineering Project Manager and consultant for multi-disciplined engineering projects at Tellabs, Inc.
Currently a full-time parent, Joan has enjoyed being able to give back to her community by serving on the Executive Board of the Park Junior High PTC (former Treasurer), chairing committees at St. Francis Xavier Day School (Junior Great Books, Vision & Hearing Screening), serving as a Girl Scouts Leader, member of the Lyons Township High School PTC Executive Board (Treasurer) and participating on the Qualification Committee of the Citizens' Council of La Grange.
Joan looks forward to "paying forward" the many, many blessings Lillian has received from her involvement in Spirito! by giving her all to the Board of Directors.
