Joan bio

Program Coordinator

Joan Wiggins is the Volunteer Coordinator at NAMI Ventura County.  In addition to the volunteer program she also coordinates the Helpline and the Provider Education Program.
Her involvement began with NAMI Ventura County in 2005 when she took the Family-to-Family Education class. Shortly after that life-changing class she began volunteering for NAMI. 

Joan graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Milligan College in Johnson City, Tennessee.  Immediately after graduation she moved to California and began working for Ford Motor Credit Company.  After several years at home taking care of her children, she was delighted to re-enter the work force with NAMI Ventura County, whose support and education helped her so much.

When she is not working, Joan enjoys reading, singing, playing viola, and hanging out with her husband and sons at every opportunity.
