Conservation Network Manager
Joyce was born in Tennessee and grew up in the Los Angeles foothills where visits from mountain lions, wild peacocks, and opossums were a regular occurrence. She spent her childhood watching the nature channel instead of cartoons, and was constantly bringing various reptiles, amphibians, rodents, and birds into the home. Serving wildlife was always destiny.
Today, Joyce is part of a dynamic team at the Wildlife Conservation Network, where she is responsible for executing the growth strategy of WCN's conservation and partner network. She oversees the strategic delivery of technical and capacity-building interventions to help conservationists scale, accelerate, and sustain efforts to save endangered species. Joyce also stewards WCN's corporate philanthropy and cause marketing partnerships towards powerful campaigns that raise funds for conservation while generating revenue for companies.
In her earlier career, Joyce was an attorney at Latham & Watkins LLP working on mergers, acquisitions, and strategic corporate transactions for a variety of public and private companies. She also represented several non-profit organizations on a variety of regulatory and litigation matters on a pro bono basis. Joyce earned two B.A.s from UC Berkeley and a J.D. from University of Pennsylvania Law School.
Joyce lives in San Francisco and has been lucky to call the SF Bay Area home for nearly 20 years. She loves exploring Northern California’s endless hiking trails with her dog, backcountry camping, backpacking, rock climbing, discovering new wine, and baking the flakiest possible pastries.
