My self-summary
I work hard and like to play even harder (if I can stay awake)! I love the kids I work with, as well as my co-workers. I feel very fortunate to find a job that I love, where I am successful as well as appreciated, right out of college! My friends and family are the most important things in my life! I am an avid peoplewatcher and sometimes, shamefully, an eavesdropper. My favorite new quote is "Being happy doesn't mean that everything is perfect. It means that you have decided to look beyond the imperfections." I am the weirdest person you will ever meet! =0)

I am goofy, feisty, and an eternal optimist
What I’m doing with my life
That changes every day! Can you tell that I am slightly indecisive?
I’m really good at
Making people smile. I try to be contagiously happy most of the time. With a name like Joy, how can I not? I have a plethora of useless knowledge floating in my head which makes me good at trivia games.
