Hi! I am Joy.
You are a busy mom with lots on your plate. You yearn for time for yourself, yet feel the pull to take care of your family.
Thank you for stopping by to check out my blog. I promise not to waste your precious time, but to encourage you on your journey to find what works for you to be well, feel well, fill your cup so you can give to others, and find ways to keep moving forward with your goals.
As a certified Health and Wellness coach along with a certification in Women’s Health education, I strive to help you take the small steps you need to be well, yet manage the day to day struggles.
I am momma to many kiddos. Some not so young anymore and some still young. I have worked full-time outside of the home before kiddos and after having some of my kiddos. I have been a stay at home momma for a few years before embarking on a new career in Health and Wellness coaching. I am exploring life as a single parent. I work from home while getting everyone where they need to be.
I want to come beside you to encourage you to find ways to be healthy and make the changes you want to make on your journey.
I love working with women to help them be their best selves. I blog about areas that are close to my heart and I know will be to yours as well. I will also be offering courses to encourage you to be your best by filling your cup so you can be who you were meant to be.
I love journeying with women, helping to inspire them to achieve being well, and filling their cup to enable them to care for others.
I graduated from Alderson-Broaddus College with a Bachelor in Science in Medical Science in 1985. I passed my National Certification to be a Physician Assistant later that fall. I worked in Columbus, OH for 4 years before going into the Air Force at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in North Carolina. I was the Health Promotions officer on base for approximately 25,000 members and their families.
I chose to leave the Air Force and work as a civilian at Camp LeJeune and Cherry Point hospitals, and then in Rocky Mount, NC for the same company. My family grew so it was time to take a sabbatical from being a PA to pursue caring for my children and educational endeavors. In 2012, I discovered Health and Wellness Coaching. I took courses through Wellcoaches and then became certified in 2014. I currently am working for Vida Health as a Health coach and have completed a Women’s Wellness Educator Certification through WellGrounded Life Institute by Lisa Grace Byrne.
Is my life busy? Yes, it is, but that just means I tweak more to make it work. I would love to help you as well.
I look forward to encouraging you to be your best!
