Joan, a native of Long Island, moved to Colorado in January 2007, searching for new adventure. Inspired by the events of 9/11 and her own father, who has been a volunteer firefighter for over 30 years, Joan joined the LFPD crew in November 2007. Always up for a new challenge, Joan describes this as one of her best decisions thus far! She enjoys all aspects of being a member at LFPD; the comradery, participation in training opportunities, and providing assistance to members of the community when the need arises. Joan also enjoys providing care to our four-legged family members, by working as a veterinary technician at the Humane Society of Boulder Valley. When not helping animals or the community of Lyons, Colorado, Joan enjoys hiking and running with her black labrador, Ashley, Crossfit and horseback riding.
Joan was obviously enjoying our day of extrication training.
