Born a gert lush lass in Bristol, Joanna spent many of her early years performing in and around the West Country both on screen and stage until the bright lights of London drew her in like a moth. There she strengthened her wings and earned her BA Hons Degree in Acting.
She then followed her wonderfully unpredictable, spontaneous spirit and flew out to the City of Angels where she lived and worked for seven years as a professional actor, whilst continuing her training with on-camera and cold-reading workshops.
In December 2009 London called again, and Joanna hit her home turf to continue with her acting endeavours.
Her inspired leap back across the pond has led to many exciting roles in film, television and stage, including her West End debut.
