Joy joined TVNZ in 2009, after several years of radio reporting for Radio New Zealand and Newstalk ZB in Auckland and Hamilton. Joy is a graduate of the NZ Broadcasting School where she received a Bachelor of Broadcasting majoring in journalism.
A self confessed “news junkie”, she is passionate about telling everyday New Zealanders’ stories and loves the thrill of breaking news. She loves working with the Christchurch team and was an integral part of the earthquake coverage in 2010-11.
Out of work, she’s a bit of an outdoors girl, spending a lot of time in the Port Hills with her two kids, husband and dog Oscar. She’s also an avid traveller, having lived in Germany and has spent a considerable amount of time travelling Europe, South East Asia and Africa. But she says nowhere quite beats the bright lights of her Christchurch home.
