Joy is the Director at the University of Mary Washington Small Business Development Center located in Warsaw, VA.   In that role she oversees the Center’s activities, provides one-on-one confidential consulting, and develops, coordinates and conducts small business training programs. 

 In October 2011, she was certified as a trainer of the HP LIFE (Learning Initiative for Entrepreneurs) Curriculum.   The HP LIFE TOT (Train the Trainer) consisted of three steps:

Step 1: Completing the LIFE Online Method

Step 2: Successfully completing the LIFE Online Assessment

Step 3: Successfully completing the LIFE Face-to-Face Workshop

 After completing the LIFE Online Method and successfully completing the related LIFE Online Assessment, Joy attended a 3-day face-to-face workshop, held at the City College of San Francisco, where she along with other trainers practiced delivering topics from the LIFE Curriculum in a hands-on way. Participants received their LIFE Trainer certificate at the end of the 3-day LIFE Face-to-face Workshop, and are then able to use the LIFE curriculum to train students and certify them.
