Wildcat Wednesday Joy Veseli

It's Wildcat Wednesday! On Wednesdays, we spotlight a member of the LR Wildcat family.

This week we are introducing you to Joy Veseli!


Job Title:
Bus Driver

Tell us about your family:
I have been happily married to my amazing husband for almost 30 years. We have one grown son & are proud grandparents of an active 8 year old boy.

How long have you worked for LR?
9 years

What is your favorite thing about working for LR?
I have such awesome families on my route & have been very blessed to share in the lives of their super kiddos.

What is something about you that might surprise people?
I am a self-taught artist & an avid collector of board games & playing cards.

What is your favorite quote?
“Teach us to realize the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom.” Psalm 90:12 NLT

What's the weirdest job you've ever had?
Driving a school bus 😂

What would you do (for a career) if you weren’t doing this?
I love to drive so it’s hard to Imagine doing anything else. If I choose my dream job, it would probably involve working with Samaritan’s Purse ministry distributing toy filled shoeboxes they collect every year through their Operation Christmas Child project. I have donating shoeboxes through this wonderful ministry since it began in 1993.

If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?
I would love to learn pottery as my next art endeavor & have always wanted to learn sign language.

What do you like to do when you're not at school?
I spend my free time playing board games, solving word puzzles, sketching, doodling, painting, Bible journaling, & riding bikes with my husband.
