Joanne

 

Adopted in October 1968, when she was just three weeks old, Joanne was named after her adoptive parents, Joe and Ann Medeiros. She grew up in Fall River, MA with three younger brothers, Jay, Don and Rick, who were each a surprise to Joe and Ann since the doctors had informed them of their inability to conceive, hence Joanne's adoption.

 

She attended Fall River public schools and graduated from BMC Durfee High School in 1986, anxious to start college in the fall at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst. She later graduated from UMass with a bachelor's degree in 1991. Joanne was involved with the marching band and color guard in both high school and college and was an active member of Kappa Kappa Gamma, a national woman's fraternity at UMass...little did she know that two of her three sisters, Kris and Jackie, shared the same interests in color guard and the marching band.

 

Since graduating from college, Joanne has led a 20+ year career as an executive assistant to various executives with several different high tech companies. Currently, Joanne and her husband, Scott live with their Golden Retriever, Casey on Arlington Pond in Salem, New Hampshire. Together, they enjoy the outdoors, especially during boating and ski season. Joanne works in Manchester, NH as an executive assistant with a high tech company.
