Education is Joy’s passion, and when she was offered the opportunity to help people understand the Medicare process and assist them in selecting the most appropriate plan to meet their medical and budget needs, she couldn’t wait to get started! She chose to work with Bridlewood Insurance, when her good friend and mentor, Mataya Yoakam, offered her the chance to join her team there.

Joy is originally from the east coast, but has lived in Colorado since she was 10 years old. She says one day she would love to live by the beach on Kiawah Island in South Carolina. She is not married and does not have kids . . but she does have a fur baby named Pirate, who is a 14-year old domestic, long-hair cat. He is her baby! Joy is most happy when she spends her spare time outdoors in nature, running, painting, dancing and reading. She loves recreating at the Aurora Reservoir, which is one of her favorite places to swim and enjoy the sun during the summer.
