In the earlier part of her career, Joy was the Director of Nutrition and Fitness for the Department of Pediatric Cardiology at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City, as well as the clinical dietitian for their neurosurgical team. One of Joy’s most rewarding experiences was creating and implementing “Heart Smart Kids,” a health program for underprivileged children living in Harlem.

When she’s not dishing out health info or sharing tasty recipes on TV, you’ll find Joy making a mess in her kitchen or spending quality time with her husband, three kids, and fur-baby, Gatsby.
