Joy Apple

Chief of Operations / Microsoft MVP

Joy Apple is a Microsoft MVP and the Chief of Operations & Technical Delivery for PAIT Group, leading their Modern Work practice. As a seasoned information technologist, Joy strives to ensure technology is implemented with a purpose-driven, “human-first” approach. Teaching is one of her passions, and Joy finds personal and professional fulfillment volunteering in the Microsoft Community, speaking and educating others on best practices for success with Microsoft 365.

When Joy isn’t working with her PAIT Group team or speaking as the “Joy of SharePoint,” she can probably be found at a music venue or the newest fun spot in Tulsa, Oklahoma. She makes her home there with her husband, Stewart, and 3 fur-kiddos. If Joy can’t be found at home, then she and Stewart are traveling, and he’s probably telling her to log off Teams.
