She worked for Stetson Animal Hospital for almost 9 years before making the transition south to North Carolina. For a brief time, she joined the team at Cabarrus Emergency Vet Clinic where she was able to learn many skills in the emergency field. She embraced the challenges and opportunities that were presented during those years.
Joy rejoined the Randall family as she began her own family adventure. She has always longed for the opportunity to have a team of passionate, caring professionals dedicated to serving our neighbors, friends and families within the community. Her passion for outstanding customer service and excellent patient care is embodied in the team that represents Randall Veterinary Hospital.
In her spare time, Joy enjoys spending time with her 3 children, husband, horses Doodle and Sundance, kitty Ruby, and her group of Labradors. Joy has a deep love and is passionate about breeding quality Labrador retrievers since 1994. She has competed in shows up and down the East coast and belongs to the Labrador Retriever Club of the Piedmont.
