Hi. My name is Joy and I love coaching acting! I have dozens of TV show credits (24: Legacy, Roots, Dr. Ken, The Muppets, The Middle and more), commercials (Firestone, International Delight, Sony, Wendy's and lots more), Films (Longest Ride...) stage (member of AEA) and voice over gigs. I have my MFA from CalArts, taught undergraduates and work well with all ages, especially young actors. I'd love to help you prepare for your next audition or a scene from your class, work on monologue or an upcoming stage performance. I am also happy to answer questions about 'the biz of acting'. My imdb link is My website is I look forward to working with you.

Joy is always so positive and encouraging and has wonderful way with kids. She is an extremely talented actress in both comedy and drama and knows exactly what to say to help inspire that gift in others.
