Get to Know Joyce

Joyce has done an astonishing amount of advocacy work that reaches beyond international borders to her native Ghana. As a doctor, educator, mentor, and friend, she’s an intensely loyal proponent of equal access not only to health care but to education and opportunity and will support and inspire anyone with a dream who wants to make it a reality.

“I have been fortunate in my own professional journey to have encountered individuals who encouraged and supported me in my quest to fulfill my career dreams. I believe if each of us makes it a point to lift others as we climb our own career ladder, we will collectively ensure that every individual in our sphere of influence is able to fulfill their maximum potential.”
