JoAnne grew up in a small steel town outside of Pittsburgh. The family didn't have much, but her parents were hard working people and provided a secure and loving home for she and her three siblings. Beauty was always a part of her young life because her mother always had flower gardens, painted on canvas with oils any chance she had, and singing along with "The Lawrence Welk Show" was a weekly occurrence for the family. She was in many pageants; some she won, but all were wonderful experiences. The last one, Miss World USA, was in New York . "It was a fun and amazing experience to work with the late Bob Hope and Dick Clark. Standing at 5'10", she modeled for some of the great designers of today and some that have passed. She also studied drama and acted in commercials, tv, co-hosted and sold products on the Home Shopping Network, had a decorating/design business and owned a fitness company in the eighties. She hopes that giving some of this background helps the reader understand her lifelong passion for health and beauty and that it will help them to live a healthier and more beautiful life. She currently lives with her husband in Tampa, Florida.
