Joy became part of the SECURA Personal Lines team in 2017 as a customer care agent before transitioning to the Personal Lines underwriter role. In 2022, she joined the Farm Lines team as a Farm Lines underwriter. Prior to joining SECURA, Joy served as an insurance agent and account executive, which gives her great perspective when working with SECURA’s independent agents. In addition to her experience, her enthusiasm for her career helps her thrive in her underwriting role.
“When I first started as an insurance agent, I told myself that one day I would work for SECURA as an underwriter,” Joy said. “I worked hard and didn't give up, and now I'm here!”
Before entering the insurance world, Joy served in the U.S. Army from 2004-2007 as a Military Police Officer. As part of that experience, she attended Air Assault School where she had to rappel out of a helicopter while it hovered 60 feet above the ground. Thanks to her time in the Army, she has had the opportunity to live in three continents — North America, Asia, and Europe.
Today, Joy spends her free time teaching herself German, doing yoga, playing the banjo, listening to and recording podcasts, and reading, among other activities.
