Joan has been a resident of Milsons Point for over 20 years where she continues to be very active in a number of high profile community projects. She is an active member of Lavender Bay Precinct where she has served as Precinct chair and executive secretary for a number of years.

As a Milsons Point local she helped lead the resident action against noise pollution issues at Luna Park and is now working to protect Luna Park as a traditional theme park.
