Joy was raised in the leafy village of Waterloo, central London. She branched out, crossing the river to attend University College London medical school. From there she was bitten by the psychiatry bug: after gaining a CT1 psychiatry post in South London and the Maudsley she want on to spread her love of both psychiatry and teaching and join the extreme psych gang in September 2013.
Joy’s interests include dance and she is especially passionate about contemporary and jazz dance styles. Her other passions include eating but not cooking and, if not a psychiatrist, her second dream job would be a judge/food taster on Master Chef! Joy also enjoys travelling, shopping and reading.
