Hi, I'm Joy. 

I’m a farmer’s daughter, the youngest of six children, a mother of two fabulous children and wife to the most amazing man. I spent over 30 years of my life leading other leaders and I have to tell you: It can be weird and it can be complicated. 

I started Foreword because I saw an opportunity to connect with other leaders and work together to overcome just how weird and complicated leadership can be. Whether you plan for it or not, change happens, and in most instances, it happened before you even noticed. But when you notice is less important than how you respond to it. Whether proactive or reactive, how nimble, open and collaborative you can be as a leader will weigh heavily on the odds of your continued success or your decline. 

I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from Oklahoma City University and multiple certifications in leadership. I’m a life coach, and I am on boards and volunteer all through my community.  

Connect with me and let’s chat about the change in your life or business, and how we can help you grow, thrive and set you up to be successful. You still have to write your story, though – we’re just your Foreword.

Leaders who refuse to listen will eventually be surrounded by people who have nothing helpful to say.
