The seminar was superb! Best one I've been to. National Institutes of Health

Your talk was by far the highlight of our event. Center For Healthy Aging, University of California-San Diego  

In 4 years at Yale, I had many outstanding professors, who gave great lectures, but none topped your presentation. Your combination of subject knowledge, organization, wit, and clarity was mind-boggling. G. Stern

Without exception your talk got the highest praises. Well prepared, well done, insightful, thoughtful and compassionate! People really appreciated your humor and the Q&A. Your energy and enthusiasm filled the room.  People walked away with practical advice but also a sense of hope and positivity. That’s a rare combo.  First Friday Club of Chicago

You embrace the taboo topic of aging with grace, humor, and a motivating spirit! The audience walked away feeling positive and confident to embrace planning for the future.  Luther Oaks Retirement Community

Thanks for everything, Joy. The show was great!   ABC News

Thank you for your incredible contributions to our symposium!  Seattle Study Club

You combined meaningful data with compelling stories about real people, including yourself. You were the iron hand in a velvet glove. It was masterful. Judith Kurnick,         Life Coach

Your presentation is exactly what we needed to excite our Prospects and help retain our Resident Depositors! We heard rave reviews from attendees. Querencia at Barton Creek

Joy is well organized, in all aspects of planning and in executing a quality event. Her style is very engaging.
