Joni Williams made Port Townsend her home 27 years ago and did not waste time getting involved in the community. She served on the boards of United Good Neighbors, Olympic Area on Aging, and Jefferson AIDS Services. As a Rotarian, Joni spear headed the Port Townsend Backpacks for Children. As a nurse, Joni with her business partner, founded Family Care Incorporated which provided long term care for seniors to dementia. She then moved into medical management where she experienced first hand the importance for vulnerable individuals to have a strong advocate and support to remain physically and emotionally healthy. Joni was drawn to Olympic Neighbors because of her long term friendship with Blaine, a young man with Down syndrome, and her deep desire to make life better for others.
