Elma Reynalds – CEO
Elma was born and raised in the Philippines. She is no stranger to living with very little – that caused her to dream big and gave her a vision of helping the destitute and disenfranchised. Her strong faith in God is what keeps her head above the water, and helps her persevere while working hard to minister to the needy whenever she can. She worked as a care-giver for the elderly in Israel for almost two decades.
Elma’s life experiences has prepared her for this position.
She worked side-by-side as the CAO (Chief Administrative Officer) with her husband, Dr. Jeremy Reynalds, and was mentored and trained on a daily basis.
In 2018, she assumed the role of CEO after the passing of her husband. She oversees all aspects of the operation of Joy Junction, including business, strategic planning, implementing policies, networking, and constantly developing improvements.
She has the compassion and drive to carry on the mission her husband began many years ago.
She is a warm and caring person who is loved and appreciated by the many guests at Joy Junction.
