Frequently hospitalized with a series of mysterious illnesses, a string of food allergies and intolerance in her childhood meant that Joyce was often left out or sitting on the sidelines observing the interaction of her friends as they played. She later learned that not being able to participate was part of her education on human interpersonal and conflict dynamics. Today in her role as a Conflict Analyst and Interpersonal Wellness Expert and Coach, these early experiences gave her a unique ability to quickly analyze and resolve conflicts with individuals and groups.
At 21 years old, Joyce underwent a series of surgeries including losing a kidney and her adrenal gland which taught her her first lesson in being resilient. It also prepared her in her current role as a teacher and coach who helps people effectively set healthy boundaries to conserve their energy to deal with burnout and build mental resilience. It taught her how to deal with tough situations efficiently and began her journey to finding deeper meaning in her work.
After she witnessed a client having a heart attack in her office, she created her signature nine-dimensional life Wellness Improvement System® (WIS), a holistic well-being competency system with resilience at its core. WIS helps people become aware of where they are losing vital energy, so they can quickly make improvements in their life. She now teaches, trains and certifies others to use WIS globally.
Joyce is the President of Interpersonal Wellness Services Inc. and she created her own International Coach Federation training certification and wellness facilitator program. She also founded the Global Workplace Wellness Summit hosting two virtual summits per year, and a live summit in San Mateo, California, annually.
As keynote speaker, certified coach, master trainer, and author of five books, Joyce loves to help audiences understand how to be more resilient and how to improve their well being and successfully navigate difficult changes and conflicts. Joyce is a certified training and development practitioner and holds a Masters Degree in Conflict Analysis and Management
