JoAnn Houghton

 JoAnn has lived in Ashland since 1980. During those 40 years she has watched the community develop and change.

In addition to rearing two sons who attended Ashland public schools K-12, JoAnn and her husband, Ed, developed two residential neighborhoods, devoted many hours to Ashland School District projects and programs, and supported several youth and Southern Oregon University athletic teams.

Along the way, JoAnn has appreciated the importance of Asante Ashland Community Hospital – from the patient’s point of view as well as being a bedside family member. She strongly supports the essential work done by AACH and looks forward to being on the Ashland Community Hospital Foundation board.
