Joy completed her dietetic internship at Region’s Hospital in St Paul after which she worked in a hospital, out-patient and nursing home settings. In 2013, she began teaching cooking classes at WCTC and discovered her passion for cooking in the kitchen with people. In the last several years, Joy transitioned to a plant-based lifestyle after researching its evidence-based health benefits and discovering how easy it was to implement. She created a cookbook with some of her favorite recipes to share with her patients and ease them into a plant-based diet.  Her cookbook is complimentary to all first-time clients.
