Joyce began working for the Girl Scouts in November of 2005 as the membership specialist to bring Girl Scouting to girls living in rural communities in West Alabama. Joyce was offered and took a position as field director covering Marengo, Sumter and Perry counties. She is now a Community Development Manager-Lead covering Marengo and Sumter counties.
Prior to working with Girl Scouts, Joyce worked - as she describes “a person’s lifetime” - in Charleston, W. Va., where she lived for ten years and worked for the City’s Manpower Office as a Student Employment Coordinator for 2½ years and for the Governor’s Manpower Office for two years prior to moving to Demopolis, Ala.
After moving to Alabama Joyce worked for nine years as a program coordinator with the Greene County Early Child Development Program; served in various positions with West Alabama Mental Health Center for 17 years; and worked with Alabama Southern Community College prior to coming to work for GSNCA.
Joyce holds a Bachelor’s Degree from West Virginia State University and a Master’s Degree in Guidance and Counseling from the WV College of Graduate Studies.
Joyce and her husband have been married for 34 years and have two children. Joyce affirms that while living in a house divided between Alabama and Auburn fans, she has not claimed an allegiance to either team.
