About Us

Joanne Petty

Joanne serves as the President of Doorways’ Board of Directors. A former litigation lawyer, she is an active member of the Arlington community as well as at her children’s school where she is the President of the Board of Trustees. As to why she became involved with Doorways, “With everything that makes Arlington so attractive,” she says, “it is also an economic hurdle, and too often an impossibility for many families to raise their children in safe and stable homes. I wanted to be a part of an organization that is truly transformative for so many families, and especially children, in our community.”

On school breaks, Joanne and her husband enjoy traveling with their kids, skiing in the winter and spending time anywhere near water during the summer.
