Joy McIntyre

Director of Operations

I am Joy McIntyre, the Director of Operations here at CAF America. I support the Chief Operating Officer and assist with staff relations, departmental initiatives, and can be considered a soundboard for organizational ideas. My responsibilities include a wide variety of administrative, secretarial, and program support activities, as well as serving as secondary point of contact for operational, administrative, and HR related issues. I also assist in the coordination and completion of special projects and/or events within the organization.

Prior to joining CAF America in 2020 I was in the Event and Hospitality industry for over 6 years, most recently managing a premier rooftop event venue in Washington, DC. In this role I became a Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) and was recognized for leadership and influence in the industry as a Class of 2020 “Top 20 in their Twenties” Global Leader, awarded by the PCMA Organization. 

In my personal time, I am also the current co-founder of a DMV non-profit organization, Helping Unique Girls and Guys Succeed  (H.U.G.G.S.). We host monthly outreach events distributing toiletries and other items to those in need, in addition to special initiatives each month to support our local community.

Michelle Obama has been an influence on me and inspires me to work the way I do, and to always excel in my work-life and my community.

“The only limit to the height of your achievements is the reach of your dreams and your willingness to work hard for them.” – Michelle Obama

I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing from North Carolina A&T State University, where I actually reigned as the Senior Class Queen for the 2014-2015 school year.
