Joan makes her debut on the stage of the Centaur in Montreal and at the National Arts Center in Ottawa, at the age of 13, she plays in Innocence Lost under the direction of Roy Surette.
This stage production brings her to enrol in Dawson College’s professional theatre curriculum, where she continues her training in dramatic arts. At school, she discovers her love for Shakespeare and his work, and earns a place at the Shakespeare & Company Center for Actor Training (Berkshires, Massachusetts). In 2020, Joan graduates from Dawson, winning the Beryl and Willie Moser Prize for “Outstanding Performance” and the Garry Plaxton Award for “her dedication, generosity and respect for the profession”.
After auditioning in New York, she is accepted within the Shakespeare curriculum of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London, UK. This program will never take place. Despite the pandemic having changed her plans, Joan is flourishing through new artistic projects, namely Misanthrope, You Never Talk About Your Dreams and Old guys in bed. In 2023, she brilliantly embodies the role of Bonnie in Le plongeur by Francis Leclerc, her first francophone film in Quebec. Since then, she is part of the cast of Sorcières, a television series by Myriam Verreault and Ian Lagarde.
