I’m Dr. Joyce Kelly-Lewis and I have learned how to help others during my seventy-eight years on earth. My childhood and early teen years were spent in College Station, Arkansas, a resource-poor community. I was born the ninth of sixteen children. We lived in a house with no electricity or plumbing. We drew water from a well, used an outhouse, and, yes, walked miles to school. I also worked in the cotton fields.
My life has changed since College Station. I married my now-late husband, Dr. Robert Lewis, in 1966. We had three daughters and adopted a son. I have had and am living a life filled with victories as well as challenges. I have lived in eight states and traveled the world. My work titles have varied: Social Worker, Therapist, Program Manager, Consultant, and College Professor. I earned a Ph.D. at 49 and established Transformative Life Coaching, Speaking, and Training, LLC at age 78.
My God-given titles are Releaser of joy and hope, Teacher, Inner-healer, and Connector of people to their God-given identity. I love using my gifts, education, and work experience to add value to individuals and organizations.
I live with my dog Lola, a Chorkie, in Loganville, GA. I enjoy reading, watching tennis, doing crafts with family and friends, and traveling.
