She enjoys getting the audience involved, and uses real-life, impactful stories to convey her message. With a lighthearted persistence Joyce challenges their belief of what's possible, and to look at themselves in a different way. She empowers people to push their own comfort zones, shift their mindset, and transforms the way people think about change. The result is that they walk

She has taken a serious, complex topic – the function of the human mind – simplified it, and added just the right amount of humor to help audiences laugh while they learn. Evaluations reveal audience members have heard similar information, but Joyce’s perspective makes it easy for them to understand and excited to take action. Keynotes are designed to be between 60 and 90 minutes in length. Break-out sessions and workshops are also available. Contact her to discuss your organization’s needs, you’ll be glad you did.
Operating with the knowledge that the best teachers are those who teach from their own experience, Joyce has tapped into amazing information that changed her life. A consultant with Pacific Accord Inc. (an affiliate of The Pacific Institute) since 2006, she has been trained in The Pacific Institute’s (TPI’s) processes. The same processes which are based on research of Harvard Medical School and the Universities of Stanford, and Washington, to name a few.
Joyce added this powerful knowledge to her experience in sales, consulting and coaching for business leaders and entrepreneurs. The result was Mind By Design, which combines science, self and a Layman’s terms approach for taking clients and audiences to the next level of success. She is a member of the National Speakers Association and has had the great fortune to have been coached by Toastmasters 2001 World Champion keynoter and stand-up comedian Darren LaCroix. All of this makes it a certainty that she will make a positive, permanent impact on her audience.
Joyce has created unique programs that are content rich and will make you laugh while you learn. With her high energy level, she engages her audience using a fun, straightforward style that brings the perfect amount of humor to a very serious topic. Her message is more than motivation; the tools and practical strategies are sustainable for a lifetime of success.
