Joyce Restaino

Joyce Restaino, an award-winning writer and editor, turned her training, talent, and love of words and writing into a business when she launched Joyce Restaino Writing and Editing Service 20 years ago. Because poor writing creates a negative impression, she helps businesses, organizations, and entrepreneurs polish their image through the written word.

Using the power of the written word to boost visibility and credibility, the company specializes in creating and cranking out content for clients by transforming their knowledge and know-how into articles, blog posts, newsletters, e-zines, tip sheets, and special reports. Joyce is also happy to ghostwrite or coauthor an e-book or hard copy book with individuals who dream about becoming published authors.

For six years, Joyce worked as an editor for The Economics Press, a business-to-business newsletter publisher with over 100,000 paying subscribers. She was responsible for the content of six newsletters and worked closely with top industry thought leaders in sales, motivation, peak performance, leadership, and relationship building, including Jeffrey Gitomer, Bob Bly, Barry Farber, and Rob Gilbert.

For eight years, Joyce’s consumer column, “Saving Makes Cents,” appeared in two weekly Northern New Jersey newspapers. The column received a first-place award from the New Jersey Press Women in the category of “personal informational column.” Joyce’s work has also appeared in The New York Times, The Star-Ledger, The Record, Woman’s Day special edition magazines, the ParentPaper, House Beautiful, and New Choices (no longer published)-a Reader’s Digest publication. She also coauthored the helpful, handy homeowner workbook New Jersey Property Tax Assessments: A Homeowner’s Guided Tour to Understanding Assessments, Appeals, Revaluations, and Reassessments for property tax-burdened New Jersey homeowners.

Joyce is also the “essay expert” for Your College Advisor, a college consulting company started by her husband Patrick. Your College Advisor helps guide high school students and their parents through the college admissions process. A former middle school English teacher, Joyce also taught English composition at the college level. In addition, she developed and taught a writing program for high school students with learning disabilities. Joyce was trained and has scored the college admissions essay requirement for the College Board’s SAT® Writing section.
When she isn’t writing or doing research, Joyce recharges by heading outdoors for a good four to six mile run or by riding the beautiful back roads of the USA with her husband on their Harley. A huge sports fan, especially of college football, Joyce looks forward to Saturdays in the fall when she can root for her favorite teams.
