Meet the Team: Joy Hoar


Joining the Kaufman Development team in November 2013, Joy has been making a difference in the lives of our resident’s at The Gramercy New Albany ever since! Embracing the Kaufman way of life, Joy has infused her passions of volunteering, fitness and creativity into her everyday.

“We truly care about all aspects of our residents lives. We make it our top priority to listen to the needs of those we serve.”

As a Community Ambassador at TGNA Joy is passionate about creating a one-of-a-kind community in the New Albany area as she believes that Kaufman communities serve a deeper purpose.

“I love so many things about this community from our community garden to personalized fitness classes, but my favorite part is our residents. They make my job fun and they encourage me to be and do more.”

Joy likes to spend time planning community events and encouraging residents to sign up and attend BESA philanthropic opportunities. “Philanthropy has recently become a part of my life, and I am grateful for it. Kaufman has a wonderful partnership with BESA. They are an amazing non-profit group that makes volunteering in the Columbus area not only easy, but super fun!”

Outside of work, you can find Joy running. She finds balance in her life by incorporating fitness and family time with her husband, Stephen. Together they will be running a half marathon in November, this is the second for Joy who completed the Cap City Half-Marathon in May 2014.
