The Joy Society Team

Dr. Elizabeth Joy

Dr. Elizabeth Joy

Our founder & CEO

Our founder had to journey to find her own joy, even though it’s part of her name.  

From a young age, Joy was that friend everyone confided in and turned to for answers. This led her to a rewarding career as a clinical social worker, eventually earning an MBA, and transitioning to a career in corporate business and leadership.

As she continued to obtain her financial and career goals, she couldn’t shake a feeling of emptiness. Like many smart and driven people, she was experiencing the "success" she worked hard to achieve, but she was missing something….JOY. Hidden behind her achievements was a history of traumatic life experiences, and throughout her long journey toward healing, she decided to halt her pursuit of traditional “success.”  This healing journey led to discoveries about how to truly enJOY life and a realization that more opportunities, accolades, and money were not the answer. The most talented and “successful” among us aren’t without human experiences and challenges.

Based on the belief that we shouldn’t have to choose between success and happiness, the Joy Society was founded to expand Joy's work and provide personal and professional development to professionals, leaders, and BlueChips who seek a higher, more holistic level of success.

As an Organizational Psychologist, she leverages business and clinical expertise to design and lead the Joy Society's work supporting leaders and business owners to enhance individual and organizational performance. In her performance coaching practice, she partners with select high-performing BlueChip executives, business owners, investors, and athletes to maintain and elevate business outcomes AND become elite at life using her BluePrints for BlueChips model.

Christi Underwood

Marketing Magician

Christi is the Marketing Magi here at Joy Society. She obtained her B.S. in Business in 2014 from the University of Phoenix after transferring from The Ohio State University, triggered by a surprise pregnancy in a time before hybrid universities.

Post-graduation she started a lucrative and educational journey into freelancing, before finally launching her own boutique guerilla marketing firm in 2019: The Clever Catalyst.

She remains a stay-at-home, homeschooling mama to her daughter, often running keyword analyses while supervising owl pellet dissections, and hosting Zoom meetings with a grumpy tweenager at a desk beside her own.

Her calendar is proof that her collaboration with Joy Society is a mutually beneficial situation and she enjoys participating in the program both as staff and as an active community member!

She strongly believes that a business should stand for something and strives to align herself with companies, agencies, and solopreneurs whose passion for the greater good outweighs their desire to obtain indiscriminate wealth and resources.

Christi specializes in working with small businesses, solopreneurs, non-profits, and private medical practices. She is Google Ads and Google Analytics certified and more than capable in the areas of:

  • Social Media Marketing (Paid & Organic)
  • Website Design & Development
  • SEO (on-page & off-page) & Paid Search Ads
  • Book Layouts & Print Marketing
  • Content Marketing
  • Branding
  • Ecommerce
