Employed Since

In January, 2018, Joy returned to Aidan's After School Program as its director. Prior to that, she served Aidan as a Lower Elementary Assistant, Lead Montessori Substitute Teacher, and Co-Director of After School Programs. Before coming to Aidan, Joy worked at Northwoods Montessori in Georgia as director of their extended day program. Before Joy discovered Montessori, she worked in New York and Atlanta as a photographer.

In her free time, Joy knits and reads a great deal. She loves playing tennis and basketball, too. She spends her summers on Delaware beaches where she loves to go on long bike rides through state park land and go paddle boarding. She and her wife are expecting a baby girl in December and are looking forward to becoming parents.
