Joie was born in Blythewood, SC, but has called NC home for the past 20 years. She graduated from UNC Chapel Hill in 2008 with a degree in art history. Joie lives on 7 acres in Hillsborough in the home she and her husband built. They are currently expanding to add more space for their family and a chicken coop! She shares her home with her husband Grant and her 2 wonderful children, Sam and Daisy. She also has a dog named Dusty and 2 sweet kitties, Balthazar and Huck. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, baking fancy cakes, listening to records, and watching Carolina basketball (Go Tarheels!). Joie is currently pursuing her degree in Veterinary Technology and is looking forward to working as a Registered Veterinary Technician after her graduation in 2017. She has been working at Dogwood Veterinary Hospital & Pet Resort for almost 5 years and loves every minute of it. She is so excited to step into the role of RVT to continue to provide excellent care for her furry friends at Dogwood!
