Joyce’s life has been devoted to serving the church and others for as long as she can remember.  As a child, Joyce recalls having a passion for influencing lives, starting with her young friends. Little did she realize that her childhood passion was a prelude to a greater ordained work of God.  Raised as a preacher’s child, Joyce joyfully took on leadership roles in the church at a very early age and at age16, she accepted Christ as her Lord and Savior and has been growing in faith since then. 

For the past 30 years, Joyce has been a financial professional, specializing in Retirement and Estate Planning.
