Joanne H. Fortier has become Warden of New Hampshire’s State Prison for Women. The twenty-one-year NHDOC veteran, who was nominated by Governor John H. Lynch and approved by the New Hampshire Executive Council, has been this facility’s acting warden since last February.
“I am pleased that the Governor and executive council agreed with my recommendation to appoint Warden Fortier to this position permanently. In the last eight months she has done an exceptional job managing this facility,” says Corrections Commissioner William L. Wrenn.
Prior to her work at the women’s prison, Fortier had been the Community Corrections director since December 2000. In addition, she has probation/parole experience.
