Crump has an interesting background. Here are bits from her bio on Bravo’s website:

While in Los Angeles, she also worked on private events for Warner Bros. Television and served as private chef for actors and executives on Warner’s television series and feature films.

In 2005, Joy moved cross-country to Atlanta, Georgia where she enrolled at the Art Institute of Atlanta. While earning her degree, she studied under Chef Bradley Rouse, head chef for the Atlanta Hawks, and worked to develop specialized menus for NBA athletes and their families.
