Joy began working for Insurance Consulting Services (ICS) in August 2015. During this time Joy was a full-time student completing her Associates Degree in Accounting at Portland Community College. In April 2016 Joy became a permanent member of the ICS team in the Client Services position. Joy assists Jim and Abby in helping clients maintain the policies they need and desire. She contacts carriers for current policy data and answers client questions.
Before starting college, Joy lived for eight years in Berkeley, CA working as an industrial seamstress and independent artist/crafter. Prior to moving to California, Joy bought a car her brother painted in camouflage, which she immediately redecorated with brighter colors and images. With this new found “canvas” for her art, Joy was welcomed into and flourished in the Art Car Community. She has had five art cars so far: Cami, Speedy Serendipity, Skwirlee, Flivver, and now she drives Lucky’s Joy Ride.
Joy lives in Portland with her dog, Lucky and her best friend, Joe. Joy’s favorite things are taking Lucky swimming, decorating her car and the myriad of reactions she gets driving it around.
