November 24th, 1983, on the beautiful island of Nassau Bahamas; a beautiful baby girl inhaled the breath of life. Given the name Joann Marilyn McQuay, she brought great joy and rejoicing to the lives of her parents.

Joann obtained her early education from Willa-Mae Pratt Primary, and a short period at P.A. Gibson Primary. She later went on to continue her secondary education at R.M. Bailey High School. Growing up in the straw market Joann knew how to work from a very young age, as a young adult she found her passion in the Culinary Arts and later became a Chef at Sandals Resort and many local restaurants.
