Joey worked as a paralegal in an entertainment law firm and in corporate America. She was an entrepreneur from 1998 until 2010 when she retired. In the Fall of 2011, she began attendance at the low residency program at Goddard College, Vermont, and graduated with a BFA-CW in 2013. In spite of her corporate career, Joey says that writing creatively is her true self and that she aspires to bring to her readers stories which reveal the rich and hidden histories of the Caribbean where she lived until adulthood.
