Joanne's nursing background is in cardiology, mainly coronary care, where she enjoyed teaching and mentoring students, newly-qualified staff and paramedics.

That led to her undertaking a Certificate of Further Education, and in 2002 she became a lecturer practitioner at the University of Hull.

Joanne joined the University as a full-time lecturer in adult nursing in 2005, subsequently becoming module leader for the post-registration modules, Resuscitation, Acute Cardiac Care and ECG.

More recently, she has developed a keen interest in dementia.
