Joan the medical director

Innovation. Safety. More Life.

Throughout her career, Joan has been a trusted leader in medicine innovation and clinical safety. Her passion is helping people live better, longer, and enjoy life more fully.

In 2021, Joan chose to bring her passion for innovation and her career expertise to the medical aesthetics industry. She completed her certification, and opened her practice, Alainn Medical Aesthetics.

Joan received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Villanova, PA. She began her nursing career at New England Deaconess Hospital, working on the medical and surgery floor of Hematology and Oncology, where she gained extensive experience with blood disorders, cancers and chemotherapy.

She went on to work at the BU School of Medicine’s Clinical Research Center, providing clinical care and collecting research data, funded by the National Institute of Health (NIH).

Joan then joined the Community Research Initiative (CRI), where she began working on drug trials for protease inhibitors, the breakthrough class of drugs that changed everything in HIV and AIDS. These innovative drugs transformed the HIV virus from deadly to a survivable and chronic disease, and the ending of AIDs. It was an incredible time in medicine, saving lives
around the world.

Because of her strong cancer background with end-stage cancers, she became a lead researcher on symptom management, protocols and minimizing side effects of drug therapy. During her tenure there, Joan returned to school for her Master’s degree and her Nurse
Practitioner’s license. Her thesis focus was on improving drug adherence with patients, based on her work at CRI. She graduated in 1996, and obtained her NP license in 1997.

She continued her career as a NP at Dana Farber Cancer Institute, specializing in oncology, hematology and rare diseases. She was deeply involved in innovating patient drug protocols, and had the personal privilege of extending lives and the quality of lives for patients.

As the COVID pandemic emerged, Joan worked with Harvard University, managing their COVID response program. She brought her clinical expertise and leadership ability to the FEMA response, helping orchestrate efforts with the Navy, government, state of Massachusetts, and serving as a clinical lead with large vaccination teams at both Fenway Park and The Hynes Convention Center.

Joan is a Burlington MA native, and lives in Bedford, with her husband, their two teenage children and two fun-loving English cream golden retrievers.
