Joy Parker Blackwood is recognized by Continental Who's Who as a Pinnacle Professional in the field of Consulting.

GORMLEY, Ontario, Jan. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- / Continental Who's Who / - Joy Parker Blackwood is recognized by Continental Who's Who as a Pinnacle Professional in the field of Consulting as a result of her role as President of Waypointers Inc., a company primarily dedicated to the management of relocation processes for senior citizens, nationally and internationally.

With over 30 years of experience in the business world, Joy turned the difficult journey of moving her mother from Florida to Toronto into a business venture benefitting senior citizens.  As President of Waypointers Inc., Joy oversees all daily operations and ensures that the company assists senior citizens with psychological issues involved in stressful transitions as well as preparing organizational plans with timelines and budget managing the distribution and/or liquidation of possessions, financial assistance, legal assistance, real estate; packing and sorting; personal travel; sourcing new residences and liaising with the facilities; touring facilities with clients; interior decorating; arranging for trucking companies and transportation; after-move ongoing personal care and financial management.

Joy's formal education was in theatre and music, and although she attended University, she did not complete a degree as an exciting career opportunity became available in Industrial Show business.  This venture eventually led Joy to hold roles as Director of Human Resources, Vice President, President and Owner.

Currently, Joy is involved with community initiatives including a position as Executive Director with the C.R. Vint Foundation, a charitable organization dedicated to the development of and assistance to Christian Scientists in the Province of Ontario.  In addition, she is a Director and Vice President for a not-for-profit aviation and aerospace awards program, "Northern Lights Award Foundation".  Its mission is: "To recognize outstanding women in aviation and aerospace to inspire and encourage increased participation in these industries by: heightening their visibility as role models; promoting awareness of the vast opportunities in all sectors; ensuring organizations recognize and benefit from women's diverse and untapped talents."

This foundation is very close to Joy's heart as she is very passionate about flying.  She holds certification as a Private Pilot, has certification as a Federation Aeronautique Internationale (FAI) International Judge, and held the role as 1st Vice President in the FAI's General Aviation Commission.  She is currently the Director of Marketing with the Aero Club of Canada and the Canadian delegate to the FAI, General Aviation Commission.

As a result of a corporate merger, Waypointers also handles marketing and event production management and consulting. For more information, please visit www.waypointers.ca.
