Joanna and her husband, Rudy, opened Beelieve in January of 2015 and have been enjoying this new adventure helping kids and their families by providing the best all-around care to help each one of them meet their highest potential and bee the best that they can bee. When not at work, Joanna enjoys spending time with Rudy and their two active children, Baylee and Liam.
