A San Diego native, Joyce spent 20 years in the nonprofit arts world before becoming an independent contractor for Dexter’s.  When the opportunity arose to become part of the staff, serving as bookkeeper and liaison to the POS system, the quality of personnel and store values are what clinched the deal.  She’s happy to have kept her connections in the arts through her continuing work with the San Diego Guild of Puppetry and The Fern Street Circus.
