Upon retiring from her military career, Joy accepted a   delivery position with the U.S. Postal Service.  Her educational background includes a master’s degree in guidance and the completion of the Diocesan Lay Ministry Formation Program from Silver Lake College.  Joy loves the Church and demonstrates that love in her commitment to many projects and ministry areas of St. Philip Parish in Green Bay.
