Joy Blake

Previously worked for companies like TD Canada Trust, Wells Fargo Financial among other Financial Services company. After giving my time dedicated to those companies, I decided to look into what really interest me.

I also love business operations (grew up operating family retail business over 10 years) and love helping others being self sufficient and empowered to forge their own paths.

I later worked on a 1yr contract as a Business Development Advisor assisting the Jane Finch Community Ministry/Black Creek Community Loan program supporting people with great business ideas but unable to access bank credit ; provided help with Micro Loans from $5000-$10,000 to start or expand businesses.

I assisted with business support and resources to start and maintain a business. I coordinated with diverse committees on community improvement strategies, resources, employment and entrepreneurial activities and events and worked in conjunction with a lot of great committees. While I loved that opportunity working for a not for profit with limited funding meant I had to move on from this opportunity when my contract ended.

I hope to continue support people gain self employment and on the flip side provide business solutions via my web interest.

Working for Lugzry jewelries helped me tap into my creative side. which lead me to then study at Humber College Web Design & development

I enjoy creating things with my hands and colors. For my hobby I work part time as a Freelance Web Designer/Business Development Manager mainly developing Business websites which gives me the ability to work from anywhere in the world.

I also rock with a BZ Driver's Licence which I hope to gain a Transit operator role with helping our fine city.

I am now pleased with the direction my life is heading as I get to incorporate all the things I love into my life presently.
