For the past seven years Joyce, along with a dedicated group of volunteers, has led free, bi-monthly meetings providing training, networking opportunities and hope to those in career transition. She has been described as a “lighthouse” for some 2000 people.

Her nominator is also a Women’s Impact, Inc. member, Dianne Digianantonio. Also volunteering as a part of the NCENG leadership team is Women’s Impact, Inc. member Barbara Jean Winston.
