Family Service Counselor
Creating, enhancing and renewing value are the cornerstones of
Joy’s belief system. Her biggest influences are of people and movements that
have shaped world views on a local level. She has always been a strong
voice for local businesses, government, and even sports teams. Known in her
inner circle as the Home Team Queen, Joy is famous for supporting local
headliners, unless there is a New York visitor in the building.
Hailing from Brooklyn, New York, Joy experienced the highs and
lows of a blended family. Growing up she learned very early on that
families are made of love, not blood, and leadership came early in life. Always
dreaming of attending Howard University and then to pursue a Law degree, Joys
dream derailed at the age of 17 after burying her mother. She was responsible
for the loving care and nurturing of her 3 younger sisters. On a daily basis,
Joy was reminded how important it was to plan, manage and execute in order to
ensure the success of her new role in life as provider.
Joy spent the lion share of her professional experience in
property and asset management. Finding the challenges of multi-family
housing to be amongst her most rewarding successes , Joy has worked in some of
our nation’s largest metropolitan areas including Washington, DC, Baltimore,
MD, Raleigh-Durham, NC, Houston and Dallas-Fort Worth, TX . In these roles, her
business acumen and compassion has made her an intricate partner in the success
and wellness of hundreds of families. Leaving the mark of a great leader,
Joy has a legacy of building confidence and pride in her team.
Joy’s professional accomplishments paled in comparison to the
fulfillment she felt in marriage and giving birth to her daughter Jada
Auset. Joy tells stories about being raised by her own mother, and looking
forward to imparting the same strength, resilience and zest for life that her
own mother, had sewn into her. Jada is sophomore in High School and captain
of the step team.
Currently in the role of
Survivor herself, Joy has joined the ranks of millions of women in the
fight against breast cancer. Using her own life experiences, Joy joins the
Emerald Hills team as a Family Service Counselor, with a sincere heart,
compassion and is the living proof of the spirit of renewal and the power of
love and support.
