The Smoking Jacket: What three words would you use to describe yourself?
Joy Glass: Sexy, smart, and daring.
TSJ: What is something we wouldn’t be able to tell just by looking at you?
JG: That I am a huge goofball. I love to play around.
TSJ: Tell us a bit about your background.
JG: I was born in Madrid, Spain. My dad was in the airforce and I traveled a lot growing up. I had the opportunity to experience new cultures and meet new people. I think that helps me today because I am still so open to new experiences, new people, and I am comfortable in any environment.
TSJ: What do you like best about your hometown?
JG: It’s green! We have seasons! I love it! I live in historical Fredericksburg. We have the longest running soda fountain in the US. Mary Washington’s childhood home is here. Remnants of battle fields. It is a really neat place to call home.
TSJ: How would you describe yourself in high school?
JG: The nerd turned rebel.
TSJ: What do you like to do for fun when you’re hanging with your dude friends?
JG: Guys are so much fun to hang out with because they do “guy” things. They will take you kayaking and cliff-jumping. The testosterone makes it fun.
TSJ: What do you do with your girlfriends?
JG: I love the girly stuff. Nails, shopping, and gossip. It’s fun to be feminine and embrace that. I love getting dressed up with my girls for a night on the town, sharing recipes for a new dish, or just relaxing with some friends and having a spa day at home.
