Growing up active in team sports kept Joy focused on being in her best physical shape. She found herself developing a passion and interest in health and the human body. As a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Joy received a B.A. in Exercise and Sport Science. In 2008, while in graduate school, she decided to work as a personal trainer because of the flexible hours. She immediately fell in love with the job and decided to pursue it as a career. Soon after, she received a Master of Science in Nutrition from Georgia State University and completed an internship at The Ohio State University to become a registered dietitian. Additionally, she is a certified personal trainer and certified weight loss specialist through the National Academy of Sports Medicine.
Joy loves her career as a personal trainer because of the opportunity to impact lives. She believes in "living outside the norm" and pushing yourself to be your absolute best self. Her special interests include weight loss, nutrition, and building muscle. In addition to personal and group training, she also offers nutrition counseling, meal plans, and grocery store tours.
