Joy Pritchard has always had a love for words! Her parents tell stories about the “words” she’d create as a young child, when she covered their checks and walls with scribbles. This passion was developed and led to exploring the newspaper world in high school and a Writing and Rhetoric degree from Northwestern College (Iowa) in 2001.
From there, she took her love of words and entered the working world, gaining over 10 years of writing experience for various newspaper/magazine publications and other clients in Iowa and Minnesota. In April 2012, Joy became a contributing editor for the NAFA Annuity Outlook Magazine.
In September 2013, Joy joined the IIG team as an Administrative Assistant. She offers support to clients in a variety of ways and implements the team’s creative marketing projects, which include overseeing social media efforts, analyzing data, creating PowerPoints, or editing and creating blog posts. Joy loves meeting new people and isn’t afraid of hard work.
When Joy’s not working for IIG, she teaches piano lessons and enjoys photography. Joy lives in the Iowa Great Lakes Area, with her husband Jeremy and their two children. She also enjoys running, sports, reading, and is active in several volunteer groups.
