With more than 20 years of experience in environmental planning and the management of state and federal permitting, Joy provides strategic analysis and support for the development of renewable energy projects. She specializes in environmental permitting for offshore and onshore wind farms.
Joy understands the technical challenges and regulatory requirements that shape a project and works collaboratively with clients to address critical permitting issues. Her practice focuses on the development of programmatic approaches to project documentation, including requirements for BOEM Site Assessment Plans and Construction and Operations Plans, USACE permits, as well as NEPA Environmental Impact Statements.
Involved in offshore wind since 2008, Joy has worked on Cape Wind and Block Island—the first offshore wind farm in the US. She’s also worked on projects for the Department of Energy, Department of Interior, and several offshore wind developers and transmission clients. Additionally, Joy has served as an elected member of her local board of education for the past ten years.
