From an early age, Joeanally has been fascinated by different ethnicities around the world and has appreciated the unique beauty that each culture contributes to the world as a whole. While earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Design from the School of Fine Arts in Puerto Rico, Joeanally also worked in the Puerto Rican film industry for over six years. In pursuit of her passion for the design industry, she relocated to Orlando, Florida, where she worked at Walt Disney World as a costume designer.

 

After eight successful years with Walt Disney, Joeanally moved to Portland, Oregon, where she quickly became involved in the Latino community. Most notably, she became involved with the Bienestar de la Familia nonprofit to empower women to use art as a way to heal and help them recognize their cultural and social needs. She is also an active member of the East Portland Community Plan, an organization that strives for sustainability by establishing a culture that is equally invested in relationships, processes, and results. In 2018, Joeanally played an active role in a fundraiser through the Social Justice Fund that connected and provided funding for many nonprofits involved in the economic justice movement.
