Joyce Rodriguez

Joyce is the intake coordinator for Occupational and Physical Therapy at The Play Lab.

"I was born in Las Cruces, NM but lived in Vado, NM for the first 10-11 years of my life. I then moved back to Las Cruces and have lived here since. I attended Onate High School and played soccer during my junior year. In my free time I like to spend time with my family, we like to do outdoor activities like hiking and camping. We also love to have our Friday movie nights at home! One thing that I love the most about my job is the way that The Play Lab is constantly trying to find ways to help not only their patients but the whole family by providing resources and tools for them to take back home to be successful. I love helping people, and knowing that my workplace is able to provide these amazing services makes me happy! And truthfully, I come in every morning excited to work and get these kiddos and adults into our office to get them the help they need to be the very best that they can be in their lives!"

"I moved from Los Angeles, California to Las Cruces in 1991. I retired from The City of Cruces, Utilities Department (LCU) in 2021 after 25 years of serving our community! I did some traveling and went back to the work force after a year. I took a position as Front Desk Attendant at Charlotte’s place in 2022. Now in July I will start a new position at The Play Lab as an Intake Coordinator. I am looking forward to this new opportunity to learn, meet & work with their great staff & clients! I have 3 children (Triplets) & two Granddaughters. I enjoy any available Family time that we get, since my children have very busy careers. I enjoy traveling when possible, and I spend a lot of time with my friends. At home, I get busy working on small projects, & my relaxing time is watching movies & spending time outdoors, with my 3 Chihuahuas. "
