Joan Braaten is currently a live-in caregiver to her 89-year-old mother with Alzheimer’s. She has a Baccalaureate degree in Healthcare from the University of Mary, Bismarck, ND.
She has since enjoyed a myriad of jobs in caregiving, hospice, health and safety, public speaking and many other businesses. Her varied background has allowed her the luxury of meeting, experiencing and learning from many different types of people. This has led her into a holistic career including being an Intuitive Life Coach, Reiki Master/Teacher, Pranic Energy Healer and Public Speaker.
Originally from North Dakota, Joan is the mother of 3 beautiful daughters. In November of 2015, she was featured in a local newspaper detailing the positive growth and transformation she has experienced while caregiving for her mother. Joan feels blessed to be able to do what she’s doing and is passionate about sharing how caregivers can change a negative environment and attitude into an extremely positive one where everyone is thriving in mind, body and spirit. Her approach is straightforward, no- nonsense and moving as it is mixed with compassion, love and patience.
