Joyce’s career was on the fast track, but in September 2008, a breast cancer diagnosis forced her to step back and reevaluate how she managed her time. She was juggling a lot of balls—professional, mother, wife, daughter, sister, friend, volunteer, church member, of and the list goes on… Four years after her breast cancer diagnosis and twenty-one years of loyal service, Joyce stepped out on faith and decided to retire from her promising career to focus on her family, becoming a business owner and helping others achieve a more balanced and stress-free life.
