Joanna was granted a clearance by FINA in December 2005 to swim for Australia, having fulfilled the sport's governing body's one-year citizenship rule after she joined Miami Swimming Club on the Gold Coast in December 2004.

She trained under Grant Hackett's coach Denis Cotterell at Miami, but has been based at the University of Southern California for the past four years.

When she was competing for England, she denied Australia gold and silver medals at the 2002 Commonwealth Games. She lived and trained in Australia as a teenager and holds Australian and British citizenship.
