Renata Joy is one of those rare people who developed her passion very early in life. As a young girl, growing up in Chicago, Renata realized being strong and healthy was her passion, understandable for a smart kid who saw a lot of her family and community fall ill or pass away from preventable illnesses. “I did not want to be sick. Even as a kid I knew that self-care was the way to a healthy lifestyle, I was always running around exercising, trying to eat well, reading about the importance of massage therapy and creating challenges, I was definitely ahead of my time!”

Joy decided she always would challenge herself physically, mentally and spiritually, in the gym, at work and as a way of life. Her career as an award-winning television producer brought many challenges, as she found herself traveling the world while working with media superstars such as Barbara Walters, Tom Brokaw, Meredith Vieira and Tom Bergeron.

Renata was on the inaugural producing staff of ABC’s long running hit THE VIEW when she realized that following her passion, full time, was what she needed to do.
