Episode 30 // JoAnn Jordan

In Episode 30 of the Guitars & Granola Bars podcast, I’m chatting with music therapist JoAnn Jordan. JoAnn talks about discovering her passion for working with two seemingly opposite populations, raising her daughter and building a private practice in a rural area, and adjusting to life as an empty nester.
