Joy graduated from Stellenbosch University in 2006 with her Bachelor of Science (Honors) degree in Physiotherapy. In 2014 she completed a Post-graduate course in Orthopedic and Manipulative Therapy and more recently, another Post-graduate course specializing in Cardio-Pulmonary Rehabilitation.

In her 14 years of experience she has worked with both In and Out-patients of the SANDF at the Air Force Base Langebaanweg, The South African Air Force, Private Practices at Netcare Blaauwberg and N1 City Hospital, as well as Public and Private Hospitals in Oshakati, Namibia & Health Clinics in Angola.

In 2010, Joy made the bold decision to start her own practice, Yad-Marpe Physiotherapist (Hebrew for God’s healing hands). The business was birthed in prayer and was established as a vehicle through which God’s Kingdom reigns to impart and impact lives for God’s purpose through building relationship and restoring lives.

Her passion is to see people healed, lives and relationships restored and transformed for His purpose and glory. She also believes in ministry in the market place and that every encounter is an opportunity to share God’s love.
