Joanne Connolly grew up in Framingham, MA and attended three different colleges to get her undergraduate degree. She graduated from Framingham State University in 2012 with a degree in biology and a concentration in secondary education. Through her experience in substituting, she found that teaching was not for her. However, she enjoyed getting to know her students and discovered a true passion in helping them access higher education. Combining this passion with her experience in the college transfer process, she decided to pursue a career in higher education.
When Joanne's not working, she enjoys Zumba classes, baking, reading, traveling with her fiancé, Taylor, and singing — both in musicals and in traffic jams.
