Meet Joanne

Registered Dietitian & Wellness Nutritionist


I'm Joanne and I'm here to help. My website "Jo Knows Nutrition" came about as I am known for giving advice that seems to work for others.

"Jo Jo Knows" has become a 'thing' and I am delighted.

There is something special about helping individuals and groups with their nutrition and lifestyle goals. My mission is to simplify and tailor nutrition prescriptions/guidelines that are easy to follow and are sustainable in the long term.


As a Registered Dietitian, I have learned and continue to learn a great deal in school and on the job. As a busy working mother of two, I have learned even more about what works and doesn't work in the kitchen, in the home and in life. I have always loved to cook because....I love to eat fabulous food. I have become very good at modifying restaurant-style food to boost the nutritional value while staying mindful of cost and time spent in the kitchen.

I am pretty passionate about passing on what I know in the ever changing field of nutrition with others.


I look forward to working with you soon.
