We are so excited to have Joanna Peluso, aka “Jo”, join the team as Healthier Jupiter’s Outreach Coordinator. Joanna previously served as the Outreach Coordinator with Healthier Jupiter as an AmeriCorps VISTA and is now back to work full-time with Healthier Jupiter.
Like many of Healthier Jupiter’s supporters, she made the move to Florida from the northeast, specifically New Jersey, in 2016. She graduated from The College of new Jersey (TCNJ) in 2014 with a B.A. in Sociology and a concentration in environmental studies. After graduating, she worked and saved money, traveled and then came back to the states to serve as The Community Impact Evaluator with El Sol in Jupiter as an AmeriCorps VISTA from February 2016-February 2017 and then as the Outreach Coordinator with Healthier Jupiter from February 2017-February 2018. As an AmeriCorps she learned a lot of critical skills and began her journey to work with the community to create the change they want to see. She is excited to continue engaging our unique community as Healthier Jupiter’s Outreach Coordinator and hopes to be a part of creating sustainable healthy change.
Joanna loves to attend community events, support small local businesses, cook vegetarian meals, reduce food waste, smile and walk! If you see Joanna out in the community walking, make sure to say “Hi” and recommend some good podcasts, audiobooks or music for her to listen to!
Any questions, ideas you want to share or want to learn more about how to get involved, email Joanna at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can send her good podcasts at this email as well!
