"By the way, I have to say Joyce is FABULOUS with our children. Her bubbly personality is a breath of fresh air every time she enters our home. She not only makes my children feel great, but also my husband and I. It's a great feeling knowing we can leave our children in such capable hands while we enjoy a night out. Our daughter has been asking for "Ms. Joyce" to come over in the evenings to play and read to her. I cannot say enough good things about Joyce. She really has been a blessing to my family. Thanks Casey!"​
