Joy Vogel-Lahti, is a vivacious entrepreneur that loves to laugh and promote happiness and healthiness. She is also a wife and above all a mom and a champion of women, children and seniors. She chooses to live life to the fullest and embrace the challenges that life throws her way, then constructively learn & share those experiences with others. Joy strongly believes that when children and young adults are taught respect of others and selves, and are nurtured in a positive and encouraging environment they grow into confident teens and adults that can embrace all life’s choices and offerings. Self confident and self-assured pre teens and teens are better emotionally equipped to recognize and resist peer pressure and can be the communities greatest advocates against racism, homophobia and bullying.
Joy feels that in today’s world of “too little time” there is a lack of nutrition and education surrounding nutrition and exercise and living well. If we are as a society going to beat obesity, and the rise of diabetes, especially in our youth and seniors sectors, there needs to be better choices out there and more education about them.
Joy is the owner of “Joy In Your Kitchen”, a food services company that helps families make meal times both nutritional and convenient by offering a product line of homemade nutritional foods, fully cooked and delivered frozen. She also offers Teach Me to Cook lessons for preteens to the young at heart.
Joy is a self-taught cook – extraordinaire, a public speaker and lives in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada with her husband, children and dog.
