Johanna and Daisy Pic

Joanna

School Program Tutor

Joanna is passionate about dog assisted learning and excited to join the team with Daisy, her 2 year old Labradoodle.  She has taught English as a foreign language in Europe and has practised midwifery in the UK and Melbourne.  In recent years she has been a full-time mother of two beautiful children, who together with Daisy, have taught her more about herself than she could have imagined!

Whilst taking part in the Family Dog Project, Joanna experienced firsthand how dogs change people’s lives.  This inspired her to train Daisy to become an Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT) dog.  She is looking forward to using Daisy to connect with young people to create positive changes in the classroom and beyond.
