Early Life and Education

Joanne grew up in Marietta where she attended Lassiter High School, and returned home to join FOX 5 Atlanta in 2007.[0]

She graduated magna cum laude and was inducted into the Phi Beta Kappa honor society.

Her broadcasting career began when she was one of two graduate students selected to forecast for Penn State's daily weather magazine, 'Weather World' - a show that has a surprising following all across the state of Pennsylvania.

During her time in Atlanta, she has been honored with three Emmy Award's- one for best weathercaster in the southeast, and two for specialty reports on weather.

In 2011, she was voted "Favorite Weathercaster in Atlanta" by the readers of Jezebel Magazine.

It is the highest designation offered to broadcasters after they have proven scientific competency and passed a rigorous exam.[0]
