"Early on I realized that my seemingly disparate interests in art, religion, drama, writing, liberation, and education all had to do with the same questions: What does it mean to know? How are experience, wisdom, and knowledge conveyed? and What can we do to give our highest selves a voice?"
JoAnn and her husband, Mike, live in Greenville, South Carolina with their sheep-herding shepherd, Muffy.
