Class of 2021-2022
Joie Florence is a proud Idahoan, born and raised. Growing up here, she learned to love the Idaho outdoors and the wonderful people who live here. She graduated from Bishop Kelly High School in Boise in 2009. She then studied Exercise Science at University of Idaho in Moscow. She participated in the Greek system as a Kappa Alpha Theta and she worked as a gymnastics coach at Palouse Empire Gymnastics. She was able to serve a free health clinic, Snake River Community Clinic in Lewiston, Idaho.
After graduation from U of I, she began medical school at University of Washington’s Idaho WWAMI program. She felt lucky to do most of her training in areas of Idaho including Moscow, Hailey, and Boise. Through her training, it became clear that family medicine would be the perfect fit for her.
When her nose is not in the books, Joey loves playing board games, traveling, dancing and spending time with her loved ones (humans and dogs). Her love of the outdoors continues to grow; when she finds the time she rock climbs, hikes and bikes. She also has a passion for organized sport. Her first love was gymnastics then later track & field. In college, she found a love for Ultimate Frisbee. Now, she participates in local city-league volleyball. Her love of sports spilled over into professional life as a passion for sports medicine. Joie laughs easily and feels joy from practicing medicine. She looks forward to growing her medical knowledge with Full Circle Health. She feels blessed to continue to deepen her Idaho roots.
