About Joana

Born in France, living in Montreal since childhood, I am the mother of twins, including a little boy who lives with Trisomy 21. Before becoming an ABM practitioner, I had a long career in environmental science, fighting climate change and environmental degradation in developing countries.


In 2014, I developed breast cancer, which led me to bring my children into this world a non-traditional way, with a surrogate. Becoming a mother was a difficult journey for me, considering the special challenges that come with having twins, and those that come with having a different child. Far from being over, this journey continues to be an invaluable source of learning and personal growth.

I experienced a second cancer when my children were 2 years old and that led me to explore a new way of living and being. It was thanks to my son that I came across ABM, and it has delivered such great promise for his development that I decided to pursue certification. Since then, I discovered a new passion – to help people use their brains to their fullest. I have recently started working with parents and individuals as a certified coach, and am helping people recover from illness and strengthen their resilience.
