Having recently joined Griffis Wealth Strategies, Joy’s primary role is to interact and assist clients. Her extensive customer service experience and sharp attention to detail provides the office with administrative excellence.
Originally from Ohio, Joy received a BA in Hospitality Management from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. During her career in the hotel industry, she worked at major hotel chains in Denver, Hilton Head Island, Baltimore and Central Florida. As a fine art gallery director and most recently a teacher (for over 10 years), Joy continued to use her commitment to client service and best practice skills to serve others.
As a resident of Florida for two decades, Joy and her husband, of almost 30 years, have raised three boys. The two oldest now attend the University of South Florida, Tampa (Go Bulls!), and their youngest currently plays lacrosse for West Orange High School. Always passionate to serve others, Joy has held positions on various school boards, volunteered for numerous sports organizations, and lead teams to serve others locally at her church as well as throughout the community.
Outside of work, Joy enjoys anything health and fitness related. She is an accomplished long-distance runner, a yoga enthusiast and an advocate for educating others on the benefits of eating a plant-based diet.
