Joyce Outside the Office



Originally from Mexico, MO, Joyce came to Truman in 1987 as a student. She worked in the Guidance office at Kirksville High School before joining the Admissions staff in July 2009.  She now helps prospective students and their families with the transition from high school to college by answering questions about Truman and housing and working with Residential Life to help students get all information needed turned in for housing placement.

Joyce enjoys spending time with her family, singing at various venues in the community, and watching her two daughters sing and dance as well. She is the advisor of Unique Ensemble, the gospel choir on campus.
