About Joy

Joy, as our Director of Project Management, organizes and tracks the day-to-day tasks to ensure a smooth operation of various digital tasks and campaigns. Her favorite part about working with V9 is… you guessed it… the people. She also loves the adaptability of the team and has held a first-row seat to V9’s growth and change, which she says inspires her daily.

Joy’s previous careers kept her on the road for weeks at a time so when she became a stay-at-home mom, she realized she was missing something: people. When she started with Volume Nine in 2009 she wasn’t sure what the future held but has loved being with a company that continues to move with the landscape of marketing. 

Joy currently lives in Alabama (Roll Tide!) with her husband, son, and rescue pup, Gabe. When she’s not working or watching her son on the soccer field, Joy and her family love to be outside. Camping & hiking are their new favorite pastimes especially discovering hidden gems throughout their home state and checking off visits to National Parks. Joy also loves anything that allows her to be creative from making jewelry to refinishing furniture, and is even teaching herself to sew.
