Joy is a Colorado native who attended Denver-area Christian schools from Kindergarten through high school graduation. She enjoys and embraces innovation in school administration. While completing a bachelor's degree at Jones International University (JIU), the first fully accredited online university, she worked in several administrative positions at JIU and ultimately was named its Registrar. For a decade, Joy led JIU teams accountable for every administrative detail from student admissions to graduation, and she served on several executive committees to help ensure the university's compliance with internal policies and the law, and its responsiveness to student-initiated concerns.
In 2018, Joy brought her attention to detail, extensive experience in document management and school governance to Cherry Hills Christian School, where she provides administrative support for CHC's Leadership Team directors. Joy and her husband, Eric, have two daughters enrolled at CHC. As a proud Lion parent, Joy has volunteered in classrooms, coordinated student lunch delivery and served on the Parent Council. She and her family enjoy their game and movie nights and heading into the great Colorado outdoors. Her favorite Bible verse: "Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God." - Philippians 4:4-6
