Joanna is a violinist in the Central Wisconsin Symphony Orchestra and Concertmistress of the Wausau Symphony. She is also a fiddler, singer, and composer for MPK Christian Celtic Band with whom she performs regularly. She has studied both classical violin with Steven Bjella at the University of Stevens Point and Scottish fiddling with US National Scottish Fiddle Champions Dr. Melinda Crawford and Dr. John Turner. Joanna teaches private violin and fiddle lessons in person and online and joined the faculty of the Jink and Diddle School of Scottish Fiddling in Valle Crucis, North Carolina in 2018.
