Joy is a Fall 2000 initiate of Beta Eta. During her time at Beta Eta, Joy was involved as a the Cultural Chair, Philanthropy Chair, and participated in many intramural sports. In fact, she won racquetball intramural three years in a row for Alpha Chi. She graduated from FSU in 2004 with a B.A. in International Affairs and French. In 2007 she received her JD from Mercer University College of Law.
After law school, Joy moved to Amelia Island to be near her fiance and practice commercial litigation and employment law with a boutique firm in Jacksonville. In 2008 Joy married Paul, her high school (and college) sweetheart, with many Alpha Chi’s in attendance. Earlier this year Joy left her law firm, went on an adventure-filled vacation to New Zealand (complete with bungy jumping) with her husband, and began working as a career services counselor with Florida Coastal School of Law.
Joy and Paul have two miniature dachshunds that rule their house and are expecting their first little legacy this March.
