In addition to her work with KLC, she serves as the strategic development coordinator for the Community Engagement Institute of Wichita State University.
Joyce believes a keen understanding of relationships and complex systems is a hallmark of masterful leadership.
Dr. McEwen Crane has successfully trained and coached hundreds of people. She holds the Professional Certified Coach (PCC) credential from the International Coach Federation, the Board Certified Coach (BCC) credential from the Center for Credentialing and Education, and is a Certified Life Coach through the Institute for Life Coach Training.

Joyce is a co-founder of the innovative coaching venture, the Ad Astra Coach Alliance and owns Resonance Coaching and Consulting. Clients and co-workers admire Joyce’s gift for leadership and mentoring, describing her as a “true visionary,” and “beacon of human potential,” with an “ever-present determination to rise above normal human limitations.”
A proud fourth generation Kansan, Joyce comes from a long history of farming, teaching, community service and entrepreneurship. When she’s not coaching, look for Joyce on a plane bound for somewhere intriguing, singing with her husband in the church choir, serving on a local non-profit board, or in her kitchen experimenting with new – and perhaps never to be replicated – recipes.
