An Interview with Joanna Fix
by Kathryn Quinlan, PAC Lead Mentor and Trainer
with Joanna Fix, PAC Core Team Member
Welcome, to this month’s Art Corner and our interview with PAC Core Team Member Joanna Fix. She will read, Robert the Robin, her published, rhyming children’s book, as well as share some of her beading, and a very moving painting she did not long ago. I hope you enjoy our sharing.
Joanna joined the PAC Core team for the first time this year after learning about Teepa Snow last year from a friend. Joanna is currently 53 years old and was diagnosed with Alzheimers five years ago. Before that, she was a college professor with a PhD in Psychology. She also worked as a Consultant for law enforcement agencies doing psychological assessments and cognitive testing. Joanna is married to her care partner and together they have two beautiful children, a two-year-old Whippet, and a three-year-old Pomeranian mix. She has enjoyed many years of singing with the church choir, making prayer beads, and volunteering in the dementia community both locally and internationally through zoom.
