Joan grew up in her hometown with her two sisters. She is of mixed ancestry as her father is of West Indian and African ancestry, while her mother has Puerto Rican, Spanish, and Taino Indian heritage. After finishing high school, Joan enrolled at the Interamerican University of Puerto Rico, and graduated with a Bachelor`s degree in psychology. Soon after she obtained her degree, Joan moved to New York City, and before long signed a contract with Elite Model Management in 2007. However, after two not quite so successful years, Joan left Elite Model and signed a contract with IMG Models.

Throughout her career, Joan has posed for some of the most famous fashion photographers, including Steven Klein, Patrick Demarchelier, Karl Lagerfeld, Annie Leibovitz, Mert and Marcus, Steven Meisel, Cass bird, Sebastian Faena, Matt Jones, Michael Thompson among many other, increasing further her net worth.

Also, Joan became the first Latina model to appear in campaigns for such brands as Gucci, Chanel, Estee Lauder, Mercedes-Benz, Missoni, Versace and many others, which only boosted her popularity and her net worth.

Joan has now received several prestigious accolades; in 2012 she received Model of the Year Award by Style Awards, and the same year she was No. 1 on the Top 50 Models Women list by Models.com, among others.
