About Joan

I am an experienced writer, having written over thirty articles for Her Voice, a central Minnesota women’s magazine, as well as countless articles for several other local publications. I was the press officer for several years at Crow Wing County Community Services, where I also wrote The Rag, the unofficial staff newsletter. At The Rag we specialized in embellishing mostly true stories.

As of November 2021, I write a weekly column for the Crosby-Ironton Courier titled The Lighter Side. It’s a little bit of this, a little bit of that and hopefully a bit of fun. My goal is to make you laugh at least twice. Please feel free to laugh more! Also, I write feature articles for the paper. The only downside of having a real job is it keeps me out of trouble!!!! 🙂 🙂
