Joan Marie is the District Director for the Vermont Department of Health's Barre District Office. Prior to working in public health, Joan Marie spent two decades providing humanitarian assistance, education, and program management in Latin America, Africa, and rural and urban America, including managing a statewide AmeriCorps program that addressed affordable housing and land conservation issues in Vermont. Along the way, she volunteered and conducted research on fair trade coffee farms to promote increased economic, environmental, and health justice for producer communities within fair and alternative trade models. Joan Marie received her MS in Food Policy and Applied Nutrition with a focus on Nutrition Interventions in Public Health at Tufts University's Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy. She is driven to create a healthier culture by changing the environments where we spend a great deal of time, including the places where we nourish ourselves- schools, workplaces, homes, community gathering sites, grocery stores, and media- so that healthy living is easy. She lives in Marshfield.
