This is My Story

Who is Dr. Joyee Washington?

I’m a public health researcher with a passion for serving communities. In 2020, I founded Joyee Washington Consulting with a mission to help public health researchers bring joy to the communities they serve by transforming public health research into positive community impact.

But there’s more to this story…….

Public Health Professor

….here is how it all started.

As a graduate student in biomedical sciences, I thought I was destined to be a physiologist. One day I started to wonder, “What if communities knew as much information about their bodies as I do — or as doctors or scientist do — how different would community health be if research was transformed to solutions?” That’s when I made the decision to shift my career to public health.

I got my Masters of Public Health and became a Certified Health Education Specialist, launching my career in public health. As a public health professional, I was fortunate to gain a wide range of experience from coordinating health education and community-based participatory research programs to serving on program evaluation teams and even becoming a faculty member teaching public health at a university. And, while I had wonderful experiences, I noticed a disconnect in the public health space.

There were the researchers and the program developers, yet they weren’t always working together. Researchers would collect the data but not know how to turn that information into a community program while others were building amazing programs but didn’t understand the research methods needed to make their programs sustainable. Because of my background in research and experience with community health programs, I knew I could help transform public health research into positive community impact all while having fun and bringing joy to public health!

That’s why I started Joyee Washington Consulting.
