JoAnna is a Philadelphia native who attended The Baldwin School for girls from kindergarten through twelfth grade. While in middle school she began taking flying lessons. In high school JoAnna worked behind the front counter at Hortman Aviation every weekend and in the summertime in return for flying lessons. Upon graduation from high school she had already earned her Private Pilot’s License, her Instrument Rating and her Commercial License. She had also interned for The Rocket Development Company which was run by Charles “Pete” Conrad, Jr. and T.K. Mattingly – Apollo Astronauts.

JoAnna graduated from The University of Pennsylvania with a major in Spanish (Hispanic Studies) , and one class shy of minors in Math, Physics, and Astronomy. She also earned her Certified Flight Instructor Rating while in undergrad. Some of her favorite classes were business classes that focused on the intersection of Marketing and Fine Arts.
