Her story is her drive.

Joana, the founder of Marigold, openly shares that behind her accomplishments is her reviving story as a domestic violence survivor to inspire and empower women all around the world. After suffering 5 years of abuse, and a near death experience at age 23, she chose to fight for her freedom and has worked daily ever since to build a better life for her and her daughter. Joana took a pivot in her life that completely transformed the picture of what her life was to what it is now and to what is still to come. She learned to see the light and power within us to find our best selves regardless of the hardships we have faced. Now, she implements this passion into her profession and uses photography to uplift women owned brands so they can be seen in the light and quality they all deserve. In addition, she creates merchandise inspired by her story to not only inspire others but, to also give back to those still fighting and honor those who didn't make it.
