Whether she was working as Amazon's first chief financial officer or fighting to protect the oceans or skiing down a mountainside with her son, Joy devoted all her energy and brainpower to the people and places she cared deeply about.
During her nine years as an NRDC trustee, Joy worked tirelessly to protect the open seas she loved sailing upon and the wild landscapes she loved exploring. Joy had a brilliant financial mind, and as treasurer, she helped shape NRDC’s fiscal vision with her bold and gutsy leadership.
Joy's courage and enthusiasm were boundless and contagious. She embodied the values and spirit that drive NRDC, and she will continue to inspire us to reach ever greater heights. She leaves behind a legacy to be admired and emulated, and NRDC will work hard to embody the ideals that drove Joy’s passion for our mission.
