About Joan Polzin and Leah Nichols, Spokane's Support Group Co-Leaders

Joan Polzin

Joan is a retired teacher in Spokane. She travels in her motorhome to state and national parks to renew with nature. Other joys are meeting new people, gardening, attending plays, creating cards, singing in her church choir, aerobics, reading, and having fun with friends and family. She is actively involved in Delta Kappa Gamma, Key Women Educators International; her church, and Friendship Force.

Leah Nichols

Diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis at age 35 after many years of back pain, joint stiffness, and fatigue, Leah Nichols has sought to relieve her symptoms through many natural modalities, with good success. Her passion for research not only fuels her personal pursuit to improve her life, but also gives her a solid platform from which she can help others. A registered nurse since 2004, Leah continues to work part time in her local hospital. She co-leads the local Spokane SAA Support Group, and participates in other community groups, while pursuing various creative hobbies in between.
