Joyce was stunned when she learned she was named a 2016 Living Treasure. "There are so many people in this valley you know. It's amazing when you think of the percentage of people who volunteer and they volunteer willingly and there are so many talents here that we're very, very fortunate." Joyce is one of those people.
She has served as President of the Festival Women's Committee for the Ojai Music Festival.She has been active with the Ojai Valley Community Hospital Foundation and Guild which has raised over a million dollars which has been used to improve the technology and services of our hospital.
Her husband, Al, a Living Treasure as well is supportive of her many endeavors. Her first volunteer experience was with Help of Ojai. "I helped there for a long time and enjoyed it." Since then, she has been involved with numerous groups and projects.
