Joyce Combs is a postal worker who delivers mail to the citizens of Oneida, Kentucky. When she is not carrying the mail, she is making handmade baskets, canning food, growing her own produce, and tending to the livestock on her farm. She loves people and people in the community love her. She frequently takes food and baked goods to the people in the community for no reason at all.

She inspires me to be a better person, stick to my roots, and learn how to grow my food. In my opinion, she makes the Promise Zone a better place.
