Joy Boe has worked since 2005 encouraging people with disabilities to live full and independent lives. Originally introduced to the movement through a friend who brought her to an art reception at a gallery supporting adults with developmental disabilities, she immediately started working as a volunteer. Her experience with Visual Merchandising and Retail Management lead her to an entry-level position at a day program, where she worked as a buyer and part time Job Coach teaching clerical skills. Her interest in advocacy fueled her to develop and implement a new program, giving participants of the day program a chance to work alongside her in the Gift Shop and Gallery. Since then, she has successfully transitioned several people (once labeled "unqualified") into Supported Employment jobs of their liking in the community. Concurrently, she continues to work independently on organizing integrated social events locally with hopes of dismissing stereotypes and providing equal opportunities for people of all abilities. She believes Life Works' commitment to people through the high and lows of their lives is the highest form of service to be achieved."
