Joelle Johnson



Joelle was raised in Connecticut, the eldest of three children. She was devoted to her abuela and learned many of life’s lessons seated around her kitchen table surrounded by cousins and siblings.

Joelle decided to enter the health care field after her mother became ill. She attended St. Vincent’s College of Nursing in Bridgeport, CT and graduated as a registered nurse.

After working at a busy inner-city hospital for several years, Joelle went to work for an elder care facility where she fell in love working with seniors. She eventually became the director of nursing of a long-term care facility. Joelle also has experience as a home healthcare nurse, and most recently as an addiction nurse.

Overall, Joelle has a solid understanding of issues facing the elderly, senior facility admission requirements, Medicaid issues, and practical considerations that families often grapple with when working with a parent or elderly relative, or a relation with an addiction.

She has practiced in Connecticut, Iowa, Oklahoma, and North Carolina. She holds current licenses in both Connecticut and North Carolina.

Joelle provides testamentary capacity evaluations, and consults with clients relating to elder related issues.
