Meet Joe Hess

Hello, I am Joe Hess and I live in Mount Joy Pennsylvania with my Wife Karen and Children Brandon and Courtney.  I am a native of Lancaster County Pennsylvania.  As a family we travel regionally and enjoy out of doors activities on a daily basis.  I would love to share the love of life and adventure with you.

My Story

A Lancaster County Native I lived in Marticville Pa until I was in the 7th grade and then moved to Hempfield Pa.  I attended IUP for Nursing and was in the ROTC.  I started my career in the US Army Nurse Corps in Washington DC at Walter Reed.  Following my time in the Army I moved home to Mount Joy Pa.  I have held various roles as a Registered Nurse at Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital.  My educational pursuits continued after IUP with a Masters In Health Administration and a Master of Science in Health Evaluation Sciences from Penn State University.  I wasn't done and completed a PhD in Leadership from Alvernia University.
