        Joan Gilmour is returning to work after spending the past 3 years at home with her family. Prior to that she worked at Platte River Academy in the health room for 6 years so she is excited to see some familiar faces and looks forward to meeting and working with staff and families that are new to her.

        She is originally from South Carolina where she graduated from the University of South Carolina with a degree in Nursing. She and her husband, Mike, have lived in Highlands Ranch for 19 years. They are the parents of three children.

        Her favorite hobby is spending time with her new granddaughter and reading so she is thrilled to be surrounded by books in her part time position as a librarian!
