Joanna, AKA Jo, spent her happiest times in the outdoors as a child flipping rocks, building forts, and crick piddling. As an adult, she has found a way to satisfy her inner child and express her gratitude to the beauty of the Ozarks by pouring her efforts into the landscapes at Crystal Bridges. You may find her with the horticulture crew attacking invasive plants, planting new landscapes, or quietly stalking pollinators on flowers to capture the perfect picture. Wherever you find Joanna outside, you can be sure you have found her in her happy place doing all she can to preserve it.
