Juanita was a 6th generation farmer of the homestead established in 1803 and an active member and Deacon of First Baptist Church. She also attended Nada Baptist Mission in Powell County.

Juanita is a graduate of Clark County High School and the University of Kentucky with a Bachelors of Science Degree. She also attended Kentucky Wesleyan College. Juanita retired with 31 years of civil service as a budget analyst and auditor with the Lexington Bluegrass Army Depot.
