She is also a dive volunteer at the Seattle Aquarium, where she spends time supporting the cleaning/maintenance of the Pacific Coral Reef tank.
Joyce has a Master of Accounting from the University of Southern California, and a BS in Management Science from the University of California, San Diego.

Outside of work, Joyce enjoys traveling, scuba diving, and spending time with her husband Steven and their pug Simba, as well as her nephew Aidan.
What was your proudest moment?
Having the courage to pick up everything and move to London to start a new adventure. Through this, I traveled to 18+ countries that year, and made lifelong friends that I would never have met otherwise!
What’s your favorite thing to do outside of work?
Scuba diving and traveling. I believe that the most valuable thing about traveling is that it brings opportunities to learn about other people and cultures different than my own.
Why are you passionate about working on the Board of Sound Discipline?
My parents always emphasized the importance of education and how it is an integral part of our growth and development to enable our future success. They believed that being able to be in school and participate in extracurricular activities constantly helped us learn, and that knowledge was something that could never be taken away from us once attained. Education equity is important, and I’m proud to see that focus from Sound Discipline.
