“I found Joy to be a warm, supportive coach who used her intuition and intelligence to help fit the missing pieces together for me. She gave me space to find what mattered most during our sessions and this lead to some powerful breakthroughs for me. Her genuine concern for my well-being and attention to important details moved me along naturally toward real solutions that I know will last. Joy is a fantastic partner for anyone looking to transform problems into opportunities, and roadblocks into open roads. Thank you Joy!”

“Six months ago I would have told you there was no way possible I would be where I am today. Joy has taught me how to control my thoughts and attitude, make choices to keep my anger under control, and how to give others the tools they need to do the work we expect them to do. I understand how to work with others at a leadership level. Now I look forward to everyday as a new day to help others to do their best. Having a coach felt crazy at first, but having someone from the outside looking in really helped. Joy saw the best in me and helped pull it forward.” David Barnett, Supervisor, Ozark Shavings Company, Missouri
