Joyce is originally from Oklahoma (GO SOONERS) and has lived in Las Vegas, Nevada since December 1980. She met her husband, David, at church and they've been married since August 8, 1988. They have 1 son, Jonathan, who graduated high school in May 2018 and graduated from Marine Corps Boot Camp San Diego Delta Company on January 11, 2019. Joyce comes from a line of family who were Marines, Air Force, and Navy; her dad was a Marine for just over 17 years and was a Gunny Sergeant at the time he was discharged. Her son Jonathan had been talking about being a Marine since about the 4th grade and somewhere along the line his mom and dad knew there was no going back, they knew this is what their son was meant to do and did whatever it took to help him get to the point of recruit, Jonathan (with God's help) has taken it the rest of the way!! Joyce and her husband are the children's Pastors at their church and during the school year, they run a "Good News Club" on Fridays at a local elementary school, once a month they do a bounce house &/or games at nearby outreaches that their church does with one of the many LVMPD sub-stations. Recently unemployed, Joyce plans to focus more on health, her home and her volunteer work with MarineParents, she is also entertaining the idea of possibly going to school.
Joyce enjoys planning, traveling, decorating, shopping, meeting new people and getting to know them and catching up with family and friends. She mostly enjoys time spent with her husband!
Joyce chose to volunteer with MarineParents as a way to give back. During the time her son was in boot camp, she knows she would have felt lost without the volunteers there to answer any questions she had and they made her feel at ease with the process. She also felt that "connection" with all of her new Marine Corps family!! Her desire is to be able to reach out to those who have questions, help them feel more comfortable with every aspect of boot camp and beyond and to be there for her Marine Corps family!
