Meet Joy


A graduate of Wellesley College and Purdue University, Joy calls Nashville home, but hails from both Michigan and Pennsylvania. She brings to the table a wealth of leadership experience within the music and healthcare industries, as well as bilingual communication tools which she uses to build bridges amongst people of all backgrounds, both racially and socioeconomically.

Currently, Joy serves as the Ambassador of Kingdom Partnerships for Spirit and Truth Believers Fellowship, where she connects the church with community organizations that are committed to serving those most in need, and she is also a Clinical Quality Manager for United Healthcare. The founder of More Than Rubies, a womens ministry that deals with self-esteem and knowing your worth in order to maintain healthy relationships, Joy is passionate about helping women achieve success.  Additionally, she is chair of the Interdenominational Ministers Fellowship’s Martin Luther King Day Committee, where she oversees the annual activities that commemorate Dr. King’s life and legacy of working for social justice. Her current community involvement includes serving on the advisory board for The Salvation Army, the Vice Board Chair for The Hope Clinic, Marketing Chair for Street Theatre Company, Steering Committee member for Dismas House, a President of the Cambridge Forest Homeowners Association and a founding member of Antioch HOA Connect. Joy is also a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha, Sorority, Inc. and Emerge Tennessee. She also believes that being an agent of change is a responsibility of the utmost importance.

Joy hopes to serve her Antioch community as a future member of Metro City Council District 32. "Antioch is my home, and I am proud to be a resident here. We are poised for great growth and change, and I would like to be a part of that transition. There is a passion and a tenacity in Antioch’s residents. Together we can do anything. We Are Antioch!"
