My Story

Joy was born and raised a farm girl in Western Iowa. She was raised Catholic by her hardworking parents, alongside her two sisters and three brothers.  She was also raised with a plethora of cousins, yes she is in one of those families who not only knows but has strong connections to her extended family.... it's not weird, it's GREAT!

Joy has her Bachelor’s in Nursing from Mercy College of Health Sciences in Des Moines, IA. She has been a Registered Nurse since 2012. She has worked in various areas (emergency observation, ICU, telemetry, home health and hospice). Joy has been working in surgery since 2017. In May 2023 she completed her coursework for Nurse Health Coaching and Holistic Nursing through the Nurse Coach Collective. She passed the AHNCC National Board Exam for Nurse Coaching in September 2023.


Joy is a Pietra Fitness Pro-certified Foundations 2/ Chair Instructor.  Pietra Fitness is stretching and strengthening exercises combined with Christian prayer and meditations. She completed her instructor training in 2021. That same winter she was approached with the opportunity to teach twice a week at a local fitness studio in Des Moines. Joy received her Chair and Pro Instructor certifications in 2023. She plans to certify in advanced level and perinatal classes in 2024. This practice is so helpful when trying to balance your health: mind-body-soul. Similarly, Joy is a Soul Core leader, another form of faith filled exercise.


Joy is currently studying the clinical program for herbalism through the Herbal Academy. This is a labor of love, and she plans to become a registered herbalist in the future. Herbalism is not for everyone, but it is fascinating how many plants/herbs have healing properties. Having the proper resources is important to safely and responsibly work with herbs. Having an education in nursing helps Joy have the knowledge of how herbs can affect people with different diagnosis, medications/allergies. Being safe is the top priority!


Joy lives in West Des Moines, Iowa with her husband, Will, and their 2 dogs, Milli and Ripp. They also have 3 grown children as well as 1 granddaughter. Joy enjoys learning "grandma" hobbies (crocheting, embroidery, canning, gardening, etc.) and traveling to see friends/relatives.


I'm always looking for new opportunities to help others become happy and well. Let's connect.
