Joanna is an IT Internet Usability Analyst.  She also works as a handgun instructor at a local Edmonton shooting range.

This is Joanna's first year paddling She was really resistant to the idea at first, claiming that boating is for wimps, but once we told her she gets to use a spear-like device to stab water repeatedly and quash her enemies, she became very attracted to the violent aspect of the sport.

Now, Joanna can be found vigorously paddling about the rivers and lakes of Alberta, looking for enemies to haka at and then vanquish.

When she is not paddling, shooting, or evaluating web development projects, you can find Joanna making knives in her garage, or watching Dolph Lundgren movies with her cat and Rottweiller.

Tom Selleck asked me to be his body double once... but the director said I was too tall!
