Joy Goldman, began her career in healthcare at the Massachusetts General Nursing School over 35 years ago. Out of Nursing School, she began a career as a psychiatric nurse and from there pursued Masters’ degrees in Community Health Education, Strategic Human Resources, Organizational Development, and a certificate in Leadership Coaching. Since 2008, she has been practicing as a Leadership Coach and OD facilitator.
As a natural big picture thinker, Joy gravitates towards systemic interventions that can multiply impact on a variety of levels such as individuals, teams and systems. Joy finds the most rewarding part of her job partnering with individuals that provides the space to do profound work impacting their thinking and behavior in ways that align with their highest values and purpose. Also rewarding to her is working with her partners and combining their unique talents to create something powerful that exceeds what they could accomplish individually.
When asked how she imagines the future of healthcare, she hopes to see an integrated system that promotes health for all. In Joy’s words, “I envision individuals taking responsibility for their own health by making better choices and having access to healthy food. I see payors, providers, investors, technology experts, and administrators creating collaborative systems where health is a foundational element of all workplaces. Healthcare is more than fixing what’s broken. Creating health is multidimensional and includes economic, social, and environmental influences.”
Beyond being the CEO of SixSEED, Joy loves to travel, dance, take photos and spend time with her husband.
