|Joanna’s mother Pam Evans was clearly very moved at the sight of her daughter becoming a member of her late husband’s former club. She knew she would be bound to shed a tear.|
Jo is a Canterburian who is delighted to be joining a club where her father was president in 1982.
Having attended school in Canterbury she headed to London to complete a science degree. Following university she worked for over 20 years in the pharmaceutical industry, in sales and marketing and was proud to have completed her MBA through the Open University.
