Joy is from the Chicagoland area, and first fell in love with Early Childhood Education as a part-time nanny while pursuing her degree back home. Ever since, she has been passionate about and committed to developing young minds. In the summer of 2018, Joy began her journey at LFP as an assistant during Sunshine Friends Camp and completely fell in love with the school, families, and, of course, the kids. After camp concluded, Joy joined the LFP team full-time as a teacher’s assistant in the Pimaryclassroom. During the pandemic Joy was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to co-teach in a pod of several children from the LFP community. She transitioned back to LFP as the Sunshine Friends Summer Camp Director for 2021. During her free time she can be found cooking, crafting, and baking at home, traveling to see friends and family, and spending time with her rescue dog, Miller!
