      School Psychologist

      I am Jo Joseph, your school psychologist. I applied to Richland School District due to their excellent reputation. I married and moved to Richland 3 years ago and am impressed with your commitment to technology, personnel and community engagement. I have held certifications as a Nationally Certified School Psychologist, emergency speech pathologist and school counselor in Washington and Idaho. I have 2 adult children and 6 grandchildren and along with my husband, developed 9 patents for our small business, Envirolytics, as I have a business background in real estate development, marketing and finance. I worked in the White House, security, ceremony and escort division for President Ford, back in the day! I am happy to be on the Marcus Whitman team.
