Joy is married with two kids and lives on a farm near her hometown of Albia. Growing up, Joy always wanted to be a nurse and later attended Indian Hills Community College where she graduated with a nursing degree. Although she is more of a dog person, she does enjoy the company of both her dog and cat at home. If Joy wasn’t working at the Animal Health Center, you’d likely find her working for a greenhouse in Arizona. To work at Animal Health Center, Joy believes you must have a smile on your face, a positive attitude, and a willingness to learn new things.
