My Background

Hi, I’m Joy and I’m so happy you’re here. As a mindset coach, I work with women entrepreneurs just like you who are ready to upgrade their mindset so they can stop getting in their own way. I can help you recognize and release the patterns in your thinking that sabotage your success and your inner peace.

The path I am now on was not what I had planned for my life. I have a degree in education and thought I’d always be a classroom teacher. After 4 years of teaching, in July 2000, my boy/girl twins were born. It was one of those moments where you know that life is never going to be the same. But it wasn’t just because I had twins.

They were born extremely early, resulting in significant damage to my daughter Amber’s brain. The next seven years were a non-stop flurry of doctors, therapists, developmental specialists, hospital stays, surgeries, several life-threatening situations, many long nights, and physical and emotional exhaustion. By 2007, my body began responding to all of this stress with health problems, and I oscillated between anxiety and depression. I had no model to follow for how to handle the situation I found myself in. I reached out to psychologists and counselors and voraciously read books about the mind.

My Shift

My inner shift involved the process of grieving the fact that my daughter would never have a normal childhood, that we would not have a traditional mother/daughter relationship, and that I would be caring for her for life. With acceptance, I began to heal and create a new Mindset Model for myself moving forward. My inner peace and joy returned, and my love for educating others drew me to develop my purpose outside of my family and make a difference again.

I got my life coaching certification in 2011, and I look back with gratitude for the experiences I’ve had.

I now have three teenagers, and I actually LIKE them! I am still married to my high school sweetheart Brian and am so grateful that he has always been my best friend because it kept us close through the difficult times.

and everything in your business and life will upgrade as well.

My Work

I spend my week juggling my business, family, home, and three adorable cats. In 2016, I created Pittsburgh Women’s Mastermind™ as a place for like-minded entrepreneurs to come together to support and connect while experiencing personal and professional growth. It has been a huge success, and I’ve enjoyed every moment of it. There’s nothing I love more than to create space for women to recognize that “I can do this!”

My primary means to work with women entrepreneurs is through individual coaching. You and I first get to know one another and create an individualized Mindset Model for you. We will discover the real and perceived obstacles standing in your way. Then, we will examine and address the current programming in your mind that is keeping you stuck.

Your programming is the combination of thoughts, beliefs, and self-talk that is always running in the background of your mind. It is what truly creates your outer results.

If you are not getting the results you had hoped for or are not experiencing the inner sense of peace and purpose that you thought having your own business would bring, then I invite you to schedule a clarity call with me and discuss what could be possible for you.

The clarity, strategy, and mindset you need to upgrade your business to the next level and beyond.

“Thank you for truly listening, Joy, and for being so intuitive in knowing to what I need to hear. You help me see that I don’t need to be so hard on myself, have given me ideas for focus, and help me to be clear on what truly defines me. Also, I’m realizing that I don’t have to be Wonderwoman! I can just enjoy my business and helping others one day at a time.”
