Joy was raised in Pennsylvania and attended college in Iowa, majoring in Elementary Education.
She recently moved to this area after working at Hershey Montessori in Huntsburg, Ohio, where
she received her AMI training at the adolescent level. Caring for children is a main source of
pleasure in her life. She loves to see children working and growing in all the ways they do! Joy
has had decades of experience babysitting, nannying, and living with other people’s children in
boarding schools. Joy loves to spend time outdoors with her husband of 18 years, and their 7-
year-old daughter. Joy loves to talk, sing, and laugh. Fresh air, sunshine, people and animals
are all things that invigorate Joy’s spirit.
