Joy has lived her entire life in Memphis and the surrounding area. She has been in the medical marketing field for several years and understands the community as a whole. Because both of Joy’s parents have been diagnosed with dementia and Alzheimer’s, she has the compassion and understanding to relate to families needing support. Joy is always ready to listen. She's has a genuine desire to help people in need of an understanding advocate.
What I'm passionate about:
Family - especially my grandchildren. I love spending my time watching them compete, cheering for them and supporting them. Next, my Memphis Tigers!!
I love seafood; lobster, crab legs and shrimp.

A Note From Joy
"I started my own journey of caregiving several years ago with both my parents. Most of our Senior Living Advisors who assist the professional referred families have similar stories. We relate with compassion and we understand the urgency that your families feel because we have been in their shoes. Working for A Place for Mom several years has allowed me to get to know the many dedicated professionals in the “senior provided” field. We all have one common thread, which is, we get our greatest rewards from knowing our work is helping our senior community and supporting so many families in a crisis. I love working with the professionals who touch these lives every day. The social workers, discharge planners, clinicians, elder law attorneys, senior financial advisors and the many other service professionals who help the elderly are just a few of our resources. Besides my role as Community Relations Advisor for A Place for Mom, I have the privilege of being a member of the Professional Net
