Joyell is a California transplant by way of Ohio and South Carolina. She believes in the power of the written word, a good cup of coffee, and sometimes, the need for a hug. When not navigating the chaos of youth ministry or writing for her local paper, she’s most often found lounging at the beach with a favorite book and trusty journal. Joyell’s passion is to tell other people’s stories and to help others realize their own personal worth.
Along the way, she’s worked in all forms of media, served as a resident adviser and curriculum coordinator to groups of young Christian leaders-in-training, contributed to a documentary, tutored, taught, and traveled internationally.
