McLaren Macomb has become Joyce's family and she is grateful to work with many wonderful and compassionate colleagues. She truly cherishes the many lasting friendships she has formed over the years.

To those beginning a nursing career, Joyce advises, "Always be willing to rely on fellow staff for help and support. Learn to work as a team member. And never stop learning."
