Joanie Winberg Founder of the Fresh Start after Divorce Community

The Founder of the Fresh Start after Divorce Community, Joanie Winberg is a dynamic, warm professional with a varied background. Joanie's passion is to help women be the best they can be as well as become role models for their children and community. Her mission is to provide women with the support and encouragement to move their lives forward and live the life they desire and deserve. The Fresh Start after Divorce Community was created not only because of the lack of support and guidance Joanie experienced after her divorce, but for the many women who experience the same challenges.

After eighteen years in the retail arena, she embarked on a professional career as a speaker/ trainer, business/personal coach specializing in divorce, Certified Behavior Specialist, and a Certified Laughter Leader.

She is the author of Rising to the Top, A Guide to Self Development and hosts her own radio show called The Happy Wednesday Broadcast. She is also the Founder of the Happy Wednesday Foundation, whose mission statement is to provide a healthy lifestyle for all children, women and families through educational programs and affordable housing.

Joanie is a proud mom of two children- Kristy, 27, a Doctor of Audiology and Michael, 23, a graduate of Bentley College.
