I’m Joy. An online editor/writer type, wife of a journalist named Brendan, mother of Adela (the most adorable toddler in the galaxy), and a proud resident of New York City and Sullivan County, NY. Before moving back to the Big Apple in 2010, I spent several sun-filled years in Mexico City. I’m a Texas native, originally from Corpus Christi, the Sparkling City by the Sea. Or so they say.
In 2013, after developing severe preeclampsia–and being misdiagnosed and mistreated–I became a preeclampsia patient advocate and recently shared my story in Cosmo.
