A self-confessed idea junkie, two decades ago, Joyce traded her law career for an entrepreneurial journey focused on what mattered to her most: family, community, and helping stem the loneliness epidemic by fueling the creation of authentic communities.

Joyce teaches that “your audience is not your community” and has battle-tested the tools and tactics that can be deployed to create true and authentic community over the past two decades.

Throughout her personal and professional life, Joyce’s regular walking practice has been her key for managing stress, fueling creativity, and maintaining her health. It is the key to her productivity and performance.

In addition to being the “Pack Leader” at 99 Walks, Joyce is an author, speaker, TEDx veteran, podcaster, and consultant for companies and women’s groups, where she shares her expertise about the life-changing impact of a consistent, intentional walking practice and the 9 essentials to creating a true and authentic community.

Joyce received her Bachelors in Business Management from the University of Maryland and her JD, Cum Laude, from St. John’s University School of Law. After law school, she spent more than a dozen years as a New York City lawyer where her practice focused on complex commercial litigation.

She calls Sag Harbor, New York home, where she lives with one husband, two teenagers, and a very sweet dog named Moose.
