About Me

Joanna Stewart joined the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab team in 2017. Joanna is an RN, BSN, with more than 15 years’ experience in the acute-care and post-acute-care settings. She earned her BS in microbiology from Mississippi State University, and her BS in nursing from the University of Mississippi Medical School.

Throughout her career, Joanna has held many nursing roles, including critical-care, operating-room and charge nurse, as well as team leader and long-term, acute-care clinical liaison. All of these roles have increased her knowledge in many areas of medicine. Joanna's diverse experience has been very valuable in her current role as Admission Liaison.
