Joan is a freelance writer, teacher and bartender. She holds a professional teaching certificate in the state of Florida for English, grades six through twelve. She taught high school Language Arts for four years and middle school Language Arts for one year. Kids are kids in either venue, but she much prefers the high school curriculum and setting. She is not currently teaching full-time. As a writer, Joan has done both ghostwriting and writing published with a byline through various online platforms, mainly geared toward SEO for web content and including sales copy, news articles, product descriptions, product reviews, and blog posts. While teaching reluctant teenagers how to harness the power of the written word, she also coached the high school's girls' tennis team, having played the sport herself for over thirty years. When not busy writing, Joan is also a licensed bartender and currently works with a party service company.
