Joy has a passion for promoting healthy lifestyles and her career has focused on it for the past 20 years. She holds a Masters Degrees in Health Administration and Health Education from Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia. She is also a Master Certified Health Education Specialist. Since 2006, she has owned a small business consulting firm, Health & Education Communication Consultants, focused on public health and education consulting. In 2013, Joy developed the Healthy Living Resource Center for MaineGeneral Health; a program designed to support and promote healthy living and healing by providing educational opportunities to enhance well-being through healthy cooking and eating, physical movement, and healthy mind and body classes. For the past two years, Joy worked with two other hospitals in Maine to develop similar programs. In 2016, Joy completed training to become a health and wellness coach, and in 2017 received her 200-hour Yoga Teacher certification from Downtown Yoga and Healing Arts School. Joy is also certified in Reiki.
Joy’s personal goal is to provide yoga classes that are accessible for all, and focus not only on the asanas (body postures) but pranayama (breath control), and pratyahara (control of the senses through meditation). She looks forward to joining others as they embark on their journey to health with yoga!
In addition to yoga, Joy continues on her own journey to health studying mindfulness and well-being at work, happiness practices, as well as organic gardening.
