Joyce Monty was born in Massachusetts and later moved to Minnesota where she lived until she was a teen. The family moved to Louisville, her mother’s hometown, just in time for her to attend Iroquois High School. She’s lived in west Louisville and east, in Crestwood, making her home in Highview now. After years as a data entry clerk, a baker at Kroger, a cook, a caterer, and a nanny, she found herself drifting and unemployed. Thanks to the Urban Seniors Jobs Corps Program at the Louisville Urban League, she is now putting into practice what she learned as a mature adult in college. With a smile, Joyce says “I am enjoying my training position at LHOME very much and hope to continue to be productive and happy well into the future.”
