Joanne Irwin

Food for Life Instructor

Joanne’s professional career included elementary teaching, child protective social work, and school counseling. Additionally, Joanne presented parent education workshops for 17 years and co-facilitated bereavement support groups. However, woven throughout her professional career has been a long-held interest in health and nutrition. Years ago her son said, “Mom, you’re always sending us articles on food and health. Why don’t you do something with that?” Her passion found expression when she was accepted as an instructor with The Cancer Project in 2008. In addition to presenting the Food for Life Nutrition and Cooking Class series, Joanne offers private cooking classes in her home. To view her personal website, visit www.PlantBasedNana.com.
