Joanna began her adventure with the equestrian sport in her home town of Bialy Bor in Poland, at the age of 10. Joanna’s fascination with horses and eventing quickly led to her participation in national competitions, and major achievements, such as bronze and gold medals she won at the Polish Junior Championship, partnered with a 13-year old gelding, Sheikh. 

In 1996, Joanna began studies at the Academy of Physical Education with a specialization in equestrianism, and decided to move on from eventing to horse racing at the stable of the legendary Polish trainer, Grzegorz Wroblewski. She established herself as an international jockey by winning flat and jump races on numerous racetracks of Poland, Czech Republic, Germany and Italy. She has won listed races at the tracks in Pardubice, Merano Maia, Bad Harzburg, and Roma Capannelle.

In 2003, she proceeded to the next stage of her career, becoming an assistant trainer and trainer in Europe.  In 2010, she moved to the UAE, where she has worked with prominent local trainers, such as Ernst Oertel, Musabeh Al Mheiri, and Salem Bin Ghadayer. During her US stint she cooperated with established American trainers: Graham Motion, Michael Matz, and Jimmy Toner.

Joanna is based in Dubai. She spent several years working for Fazza Racing Stable, and is now employed at Oasis 1 Stables. 

She has recently founded the HIGH ON LIFE Jockey Agency which cooperates with such jockeys as Szczepan Mazur, Vaclav Janacek, and Riccardo Iacopini.
