Client and Business Focus:

My clients are new or emerging health care executives and physician leaders who possess a strong desire to be more effective in their leadership role, to influence others to promote quality care, healthy work environments, efficient and effective service delivery and positive patient outcomes.



My clients have a strong commitment to their values and living their values, operating with integrity, and a commitment to ongoing learning, both professionally and personally. Leaders who work with Joy have the courage to look within to examine what they can do to make a difference. There is no time nor opportunity for blame….. my clients have a strong sense of accountability and ownership for producing results.

Clients who work with me may find themselves struggling with living their values, and may experience internal conflict. They may also find challenges with work/life balance and managing relationships and accountabilities. As high achievers, my clients struggle at times with setting appropriate boundaries and “saying no.”

Joy works with her clients to assess their talents and unique abilities, values, and passions. Through observation/ noticing, feedback from key individuals (360 degree feedback), establishment of clear goals and a vision for the future, measurable milestones linked to business results, and disciplined skill building and reflection, Joy works with the leader to achieve individual and organizational success.
