DIRECTOR OF HEALTHY FAMILIES INITIATIVE
Be pointed. Be persistent. Be patient. But pray.
Joyce Whitted was born in New Jersey and is the youngest of three girls. Joyce lived in New Jersey the majority of her life and in the 1990’s picked up and moved to Georgia.
Joyce has held roles in various areas of information technology, including: trainer, PC repair tech, and helpdesk manager. In those different roles, Joyce developed her expertise in operations, administration, technical support, and facilitation. Later, as a program director for a relationship education initiative, Joyce worked in the community and added the additional skills of community collaboration, event planning, and community outreach. She also developed a passion for helping others develop healthy relationships, which led her to become a volunteer for groups promoting healthy relationships as well. During this time, Joyce realized that moving forward she would only work for organizations that had a mission of supporting families and the community. With that purpose in mind Joyce decided her name was an acronym that stood for Just Outside of Your Crazy Expectations. Everything Joyce accomplished would be taken to another level. Joyce decided to go back to college and eventually received her Bachelors of Science in Human Services and is currently working on her Masters of Science in Human Services with a specialty in Family Life Education.
