Joan Ferris



Joan, a native of Long Island, moved to Colorado five years ago, in search of a new adventure. Joan’s life of service began at a young age through projects with the Girl Scouts. Inspired by the events of 911 and her own father, who has been a volunteer firefighter for over 30 years, Joan decided to put in her application with Lyons FPD. She describes this as one of the best experiences of her life thus far. Since moving here, Joan has worked as a veterinary technician in Boulder, was promoted to lead technician and now manages a dozen others. In her spare time, you can find Joan hiking and running her black Lab, Ashley, participating in Crossfit work-outs, or kicking and punching thai pads in her Muay Thai classes. Joan is looking forward to the future with her fiancé, Chas Blystone and more adventures that follow.
