About

Working as a doula (a birth support person) before law school, JoAnna developed a passion for providing the information and support families needed to get through a life-changing and challenging time. Now JoAnna applies those skills and that passion to helping Georgians successfully navigate their family law issues from divorce, custody and child support to guardianship, protective orders and name changes. Whatever your family law issue, JoAnna will be your support and guide through the whole process.

 

JoAnna graduated summa cum laude from American University in Washington, D.C. with a degree in Law & Society, and a certificate in Women, Politics & Political Leadership. She is a Truman Scholar and a Truman-Albright Fellow.


After graduation, JoAnna worked at the U.S. Department of Transportation, as a doula in a local birth center, and a sexual assault victim advocate. She attended Emory University Law School as a Woodruff Fellow, where she received both a law degree and Masters of Public Health. While in law school, JoAnna worked with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Legal Aid Society.

 

JoAnna lives in Kirkwood with her wife and their dog, Rocko.
