Joy Cover

Director of Programs

Since 2006, Joy Cover has worked in the non-profit field, providing her with experience in identifying priority needs within a community; developing organizational strategy and education initiatives; program implementation and management; and international staff management. Joy received her master’s degree in Public Health from Florida International University and her bachelor’s degree in communications (photojournalism) from Gardner-Webb University.

Joy joined Freedom 4/24 in 2015 as National Race Director, a role that enabled her to combine her passions of advocating for those with no voice, training individuals and teams for the purpose of excellent event facilitation, and implementing practical, community-based programming, all toward the end goal of eliminating human trafficking. In 2017, her role expanded beyond facilitating and managing Freedom 4/24’s Run 4 Their Lives race series to encompass any project and program designed to raise funds and awareness toward ending human trafficking.

Aside from advocating for justice and having fun with her co-workers, Joy enjoys good music, strong coffee, hot sunshine, and most of all, hanging out with her husband, Michael.
