Driven by connections, community, and relationships, Joan started her career in the Amazon rainforest through her work with the German International Development Cooperation and the Ecuadorian Ministry of the Environment. Her global experience is supplemented by joint B.A. degrees in International Development and Geography/Environmental Studies from UCLA, which have opened up opportunities to work with projects related to environmental conservation, education, gender equality, community building, and cross-cultural understanding. Inspired by the individuality of the human experience, Joan’s love for stories led her to start the online storytelling platform Nova Narratives. At GOOD, Joan leverages her interests and background to activate projects that move our world forward. When she’s offline, you can typically find her traveling in pursuit of coastal waters and the perfect chocolate chip cookie.
