Joanna Rushing

An Albuquerque native and a graduate of the University of New Mexico, Joanna is a Burqueña through and through. A mother, wife, musician, actor, and lover of all things Green Chile and Harry Potter, Joanna welcomed her first baby girl into the world in February of this year. She's been spending the subsequent months trying to figure out just how this motherhood thing works and wondering if her house might one day clean itself. Joanna loves to travel, play her guitar, cook, and drink good beer and coffee. She's a big fan of experiences and memories and hopes to pass that love on to her daughter in the years to come.
