After completing her residency in Family Medicine and Osteopathic Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine at Northeast Regional Medical Center in Kirksville, Missouri, Dr. Joy started a private practice in Pryor, Oklahoma, close to her childhood home in southeast Kansas. She found joy in providing complete family care, from delivering babies to geriatric care. After several years of practice, Dr. Joy discovered her second passion: teaching. She joined the Oklahoma State University – College of Osteopathic Medicine faculty as an Assistant Professor. This opportunity combined her love of caring for patients while inspiring and educating the nation's future physicians.
In 2017, she moved to her current position at KCU. She lives with her family in Joplin, Missouri. In her free time, she enjoys reading and quilting.
