Joan Bell, President

Joan Bell joined the Board of Directors in 2000. She is the Superintendent of Mount Hood and Public Open Space for the City of Melrose.

In addition to her role as President of the Board, Joan has served as Co-Chair of our Annual Walk Committee for several years. She also volunteered as a Mentor in our very first mentoring group.

Joan says, “I joined the Board so I could help educate my children and others, letting them know that what you do and what you say matters. I wanted them to know what a healthy relationship should be, and I wanted them to know what resources are available in our community. Knowledge!”

Joan lives in Melrose with her family.
