JoAnn has been a nurse practitioner since 2012 with a history of critical care, emergency room, and pediatric nursing for nearly 20 years prior. She started her medical career as a combat medic in the USAF and then returned home to work her way through nursing school as an EMT/Medical assistant. She spent most of her time in critical and emergency room settings to be exposed to a wide variety of ages, health conditions, and people. While raising a family of 9 children with her husband and working in Interventional Radiology she taught future nurses at Carroll University. Although she loved the challenge, she realized what was missing - “I didn’t feel like I was really making a difference. I wanted to know that the people I met were actually getting the care they needed after they left me.” She found a need for primary care outside the office and a need for a provider who is prepared to care for the entire person, to include mind-body-spirit, and could not do this in a corporate healthcare setting. “I decided to open my own practice so that I could provide care as I see fit for the people who want a different type of healthcare provider and for those who have difficulty accessing one because of their limitations”.
She started Village Primary Care Providers in 2018 and hasn’t turned back. At the onset of the pandemic, JoAnn prepared herself and her team to continue to provide care to her patients and anyone else who needed it. “It just didn’t make sense to refuse to see sick people. Isn’t that why we are here?” She never closed her doors and went to people’s homes, cars, and facilities or performed telehealth visits when they needed care and were quarantined. She is proud to be a leader in COVID 19 out-patient care in our area and continues to remain up to date to lead the Village back to a healthier state by treating the ill, managing symptoms, and caring for the whole person.
JoAnn’s personal joys are spending time with any or all of her kids and their new families and activities, traveling with her best friend/husband, singing, spending time outdoors in the warm weather, and hanging out with her dogs, Norman and Jojo. JoAnn’s passion is to help everyone get the healthcare experience that they deserve and motivate them to achieve improved health and a sense of wellness in order to build a stronger and healthier community.

Nurse Practitioner Reid received her Bachelor of Science in Genetics, Cell Biology and Development in May of 2017 from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. Practitioner Reid continued her education just a couple months later by beginning her Master Entry to Nursing Practice at DePaul University and graduated with honors in August of 2019.
Practitioner Reid initially began her nursing career at Froedtert Hospital on the neurosciences inpatient floor, where she honed her skills and became passionate in providing holistic, patient focused healthcare. While working, I attended Alverno College to obtain my Post-Masters Family Nurse Practitioner certification, which was completed in May of 2022. Through Alverno, I was introduced to the Village and fell in love. As a family nurse practitioner here, I strive to bring empathy, easygoing communication and a sense of humor to patients so we can create personalized, feasible treatment plans to get them the healthcare they deserve. Outside of work, I enjoy spending my time outside with my family and reading.
