Hailing from Pisarzowice, not far from Krakow in southern Poland, Joanna has been living in Warsaw for several years, where she first met Heart’s Home. Joanna joined our Brooklyn team in September and will spend a year in mission with us.
After completing a Masters degree in Finance at the Warsaw School of Economics, she spent several years working as an auditor at a major consulting firm. When she discovered Heart’s Home, she knew this mission was what she had been looking for, and is very excited to be here in the Big Apple. Joanna is part of our neighborhood outreach team, and in addition to polishing up her English, is learning some Spanish! When she is not getting to know new friends here in Brooklyn, you can usually find her exploring the streets of New York, passionate about discovering all the nookies and crannies of this fascinating city.
