When Rich and I used to rehearse for plays and auditions, Joyce would read a needed role with us. I told her then that she would become an actress before it was all over......and, praise the Lord, she has. Joyce is a natural talent. Blessings.

Joyce invites you to walk in the footsteps of the character. It's a riveting experience!
As my 'mother' in Indescribable, Joyce was focused, authentic, and took direction well. She gives not only a performance, but a compelling experience.
