Cheryl Valerio-McNevin and Joyce Hunneman are Moms with a passion, a passion for good manners and good behavior. Cheryl and Joyce are sisters who grew up in a family of six, where good manners were kindly reinforced. One of their fondest memories is their parents taking all six children out to eat and having more than one person stop and compliment their parents on their behavior.
Joyce holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Salem State College, Massachusetts. She owns and operates Yellow Brick Road, a successful etiquette business in the Boston area. In that capacity, she taught table manners and dining etiquette to children at their schools. Through her characters Miss Brassy and Miss Classy, Joyce put on enrichment workshops designed to encourage manners, courtesy, and respect through innovative games, role-playing, and other fun activities.
Cheryl has been in sales for over 20 years and has earned an MBA from Pace University. She believes that good manners and behavior are important ingredients to life’s successful equation. Cheryl has always focused on the importance of social networking. From her experience, she believes that people with good manners and dining etiquette have an advantage in getting ahead in business. Her background in business enables her to understand the economic factors for a successful business.
Cheryl and Joyce often spoke about a way to teach good manners and behavior in a fun way. After a number of ideas, and with the help of Cheryl’s husband, Dan, Good Manners for Fun, a board game, was born. As friends and family saw and experienced Good Manners for Fun, they encouraged Cheryl and Joyce to produce this fun and wonderful game.
