Healing Horses & Troubled Teens since 1995
Not every teenager has the benefit of growing up in a loving, happy home. Some are victims of abuse, neglect, a system that shuffles them from foster home to foster home. Brook Haven Ranch was established in 1995 as a refuge for abused and neglected horses -- and teenagers who needed a second chance in life and the opportunity to become something more than society expects of them.

Info on Joey

Joey hates being called Jospehine.

Her first name is is Josephine, but she detests being called that, and the only people that can get away with it are her parents and her husband. Her parents do it because they like the name (the Lord only knows why!?!) and Matt typically uses it when he's trying to get her attention and she's not giving it to him.

It always makes her smile when someone calls her Mrs. Bennett.

It's not that it catches her off guard, because it doesn't -- it's just a pleasant surprise. While technically, her formal name is Dr. Bennett, not all that many people (especially on the ranch) know that, and it never ceases to make her smile when someone refers to her as Mrs. Bennett -- she loves that name.

Joey was a teen mother.

She had her son, Charlie, when she was 16. Her parents were beyond upset, but it was through this experience that she learned to stand up to them, to do what was right by her son. She refused to give her baby up for adoption, but shortly after, they moved her away from the only home she'd ever known and away from Charlie's father -- Matt.

Joey had ovarian cancer in college.

No soul knows this, apart from Matt. She's never managed to tell her family, and she didn't feel like the timing was ever right to explain it to them. The doctor was able to deal with it easily enough, as they'd caught it early, and he'd even managed to leave it so that she had a chance of having children. She was only 20.

Joey loves to dance.

Obviously, Joey loves music and those who get to know her will quickly learn how much she loves to dance. She's not the sort that just starts dancing while she walks (she actually thinks that's pretty ridiculous), but she loves to go out dancing with her husband, and plans on organizing some informal dances for some lower level students on the ranch, in an effort to give them something and somewhere to unwind. She thinks that dancing is good for the soul, and with Amber and Nic, they'll have these kids line dancing in no time.

Her husband has heart problems.

Matt is only in his 30s, but he struggles with managing his heart thanks to a genetic predisposition to things like hypertension and high cholesterol. She worries, constantly, about what's good for him, and whether or not she can get him on a this, not that, sort of a diet.

She's only ever had sex with one man.

While curious, and eager to explore, and definitely kinky Joey has never had sex with a man besides her husband. And it had nothing to do with her religion. She promised herself that she would save that for when it felt right, and it never felt right anyone except for Matt. She's happier for it, and she's pretty sure that he is too.

Matt isn't the only one that loves giant, greasy burgers.

Joey is a health nut, at least most of the time, but she loves a big, thick, juicy burger every once in a while too. This makes it difficult to convince her husband that the veggie burger is just as good, because while it's tasty and good for you, she knows that it's not the same. Plus, when she brings burgers home (or makes them) she typically gets an extra thanks in bed that night.

She has a hard time keeping her hands off her husband.

For a while, people said it was because they were newly weds, and that it would fade off in time, but she's never stopped finding her husband irresistible. When she's on the ranch, it's little things like her hand on his shoulder, or the way that she leans into him, but at home it's not uncommon for her kids to walk into to the kitchen and find her sitting on the kitchen counter kissing him. She refuses to hide her love for him, from anyone, and while she isn't inappropriate with the PDA, she refuses to censor appropriate public behavior and affection.

Joey is incredibly physically fit.

Every morning Joey goes out running, and she also is a big believer in yoga and how it's good for the body. She's spent years conditioning her body, and not only does she have a body that she's happy with, but she finds that she can do remarkable things such as advanced yoga poses that have been known to cause jaws to drop, or run long distances. It's probably not a good idea for the kids in her group to go out of their way to earn a physical fitness punishment, because she'll likely last long after the last of them drops.

Always & Forever

As far back as Joey can remember, Matt has been a part of her life. Growing up together, they'd always been the best of friends, and when the hit their teen years that relationship grew even more, as they learned more about themselves, and each other. Their love for one another had always been hot like a flash in the pan, but beneath all that spark was years of friendship, trust, and deep affection for one another that neither of them likely recognized until a time came when they weren't in one another's back yards.

Nothing had ever had her parents running faster from their homes and lives in South Carolina like her pregnancy had. After months of pressure to give the baby up for adoption, followed by a grueling delivery with complications that included the fact that her son had come a month earlier than planned, she finally stood up to her parents and informed them that she had no intention of giving her child away and that they could either stand behind her, or get the hell out of her way. It was shortly after Charlie was born, named after his father's family (Charles Matthew), that her parents decided that a sudden move was in order, to give Joey a fresh start.

She never resented them more for anything than she did for them tearing her away from Matt, and from tearing Charlie away from his father.

But even out in Connecticut, she stayed in touch with the Bennetts, refusing to sever ties, and it was a good thing that she had. Years later, when Charlie was seven, Joey and Matt decided to reconnect, and from there they began to build their lives together. The love that had been there had never truly died, and they were married within four months of their reunion.

Around town, Joey and Matt are known as that couple is constantly physically affectionate with one another, and sees no need for kisses to be a private affair. Joey's known to abruptly take a seat in her husband's lap when they frequent the bar, and she sees no need to hold back on touching.

Fight Like Hell

When you get diagnosed with cancer, you have two choices: give up or fight like hell, and as a mother of a boy with lukemia, Joey's had to find every ounce of energy she has to keep him lifted up so that he can fight. It isn't easy, and she worries constantly over losing him. When you couple the chemotherapy with the fact that the (benign) brain tumor causes some issues, things get a little complicated, and definitely stressful.

Joey loves her boy to pieces, and the possibility of losing him weighs heavily on her, but it's not something that she's willing to accept. In moments where Teddy or Matt have doubts, she does her best to stay strong enough for all three of them.

Love of My Life

Every day Joey goes home to her husband, and it's one of those things that makes it all worth it. Her love for him is unshakable, and there isn't anything that she wouldn't do for him if he needed it. He's the love of her life, and she worries about him. His health issues worry her, and even keep her up at night.

While she believes in being honest with her husband, she also believes in taking personal responsibility, there isn't anything he can do to improve things other than follow a healthy diet and make good lifestyle choices -- her worry isn't his fault. It's just that the idea of spending a day of her life without him breaks her heart. He's her rock, he safe place, the one that she can go to no matter what.

So, in short, the health nut has become even more of a health nut as she tries her best to do the right thing by those she loves. She's constantly looking out for new super foods, healthy alternatives to unhealthy choices, and natural remedies that work.

She came calling

There had been warning signs for a long time with Jensen, but Joey'd let it go at the insistence of her younger sister. "Everything is fine. Promise." Those were easy words to say, but the problem was that they weren't true. With no solid evidence, she didn't feel like she had a leg to stand on confronting her sister, let alone going to anyone like the police. On the outside Jensen and Chad had a great life, a wonderful business that Chad helped Jen start up, and a seemingly happy relationship. It wasn't until Jen came to her doorstep beaten and bruised that she had her suspicions confirmed.

It took some work to get her to talk about it, and even more to convince her that if she didn't want to and he forced himself on her, it was still rape -- married or not. The problem is that by having her sister press charges, Joey cost Jen everything.

Her sister's husband had control of everything. The bank accounts, house, business - all of it was in his name, and by pressing charges and filing for a divorce and a restraining, Jensen lost it all. Joey wants to help, but her sister won't let her -- she keeps insisting that she should do it alone, and that she appreciate's her and Matt's help but that it's about time that she started standing on her own feet.

Obviously, this has frustrated Joey, who wants to help. So she recommended that Jensen try to get employment with Brook Haven, but only after she went to the owners, explained her sister's story, and asked if there was a position on the ranch that they thought she could fill.

Just let her be

On top of her son having cancer, her husband having heart issues, and her sister being recently separated from her abusive husband, Joey has a niece that isn't doing so well. Ridley is having issues with authority, and was recently caught shoplifting, not for the first time, and her mother decided to hand her over to her father (Joey's brother). Ridley thinks that Jon abandoned her years before when her mother took her and left him -- she believes that he never wanted her, and of course, anyone who knows Jon, knows that isn't true. He sent countless letters, but without custody and knowing exactly where Rid was, there wasn't anything that could be done.

Now, Ridley's mother if done in with what she thinks is misbehavior and has handed Ridley back to Jon. When Joey mentioned that Brook Haven Ranch was in search of a music teacher, her brother bit and now he and Rid are on the ranch.

Joey thinks the principles of the program and stability and availability of the people on the ranch may help Rid to open up. Because one things for certain, there's something going on -- Joey can feel it in her bones.

About Joey

This here, is Joey Bennett. She's half of a unit that most of the town would refer to as Matt & Joey. She and her husband are usually together when they are out and about, which is often.

She's a sweet person who looks out for their neighbors and has a huge heart. Her passions include her family, music, health food, fitness, dancing, and finding alternatives for peanuts in Asian cuisine (since she's allergic).

As a woman who was a teen mother, she's a huge advocate for teens in the community who wind up pregnant. She believes fullheartedly that the kids that wind up pregnant are far from ruined and does her best to help lift them up. Having Charlie at sixteen had been hard, but despite what her parents and brothers might have thought, it didn't ruin her -- he made her strive to make more of herself, and he brought her back to his father. While not every story is a love story like hers was with Matt, she does believe that these kids have futures ahead of them, bright futures.

She's taking a break from her chosen profession as that of a college professor and has decided to work with the youth of Brook Haven Ranch, as a group leader, and is even pushing her husband to get involved too.

Platonic

Friends are something that I imagine Joey has quite a few of. She's a friendly local that made Trader's Bend her home the moment that she moved there. She tends to be aware of what's going on in and around town, but doesn't often stick her nose into business she wasn't invited into.

She's a regular at the local bars, since she frequents them quite often with her husband when they decide to go out, and would be known for her loving, and somewhat carefree spirit. ( Ironically, the towns' opinion of her personality may vary drastically from that of the kids in her group -- where she's likely known for being a hard ass, then a loving hard ass.)

Romantic

When it comes to lovers it really is only her husband, who she is helplessly in love with.

Antagonistic

While friendly and outgoing, Joey is far from perfect, and she's struck up a fair few antagonistic relationships in her lifetime. Between the people who think that she isn't a responsible example for some of the troubled youth because she had her son at such a young age. She also had an incident a few towns over, years ago (she was teaching high school and not college), when she failed one of the high school star football stars for slacking off in her class, which she felt was fair, given that she'd warned them. She can be rigid and unrelenting in regard to some things, and when rules are made, she doesn't tend to make exceptions, which always leaves room for contention.

Habits

Morning Shot

Every morning, Joey does a wheatgrass shot. It's something that she's done for years because of the all of the minerals, plus vitamins A, B-complex, C, E, I, and K. She grows her own wheat grass at home and she's even taken to pushing her husband and children to do shots in the morning as well.

Rain, Snow or Shine

Every morning, Joey goes for a run. It doesn't matter what the weather is like, she runs, and if, for some reason, it's so bad that she can't she will use exercise equipment she keeps in the house (but rarely uses). This is a part of her daily routine, and it's really important that she can do it. Her favorite time of year is spring, summer, and fall, when it's warm enough that when she gets back, she can pull her husband to the porch to watch the sun rise.

Uses her hands

Joey always been one of those people that talks with her hands. Even when she was younger. It doesn't tend to upset people, but even if it did, it's not something that she tends to notice she's done until after someone's said something. Hard habit to break.

Quirks

Health Nut

Joey can be a little bit of a health nut. Not only has she had cancer in her life, but her son Teddy has leukemia and her husband has some heart issues. For this reason, she's always on the look out for really delicious, really healthy foods. She has a solid grasp of what's in her nutritional plan and the nutritional plan of her family members, and she does the best she can to make sure food stays interesting while still healthy.

He likes it down

Matt likes it when Joey wears her hair down, and for that reason it typically is. Her husbands preferences matter a great deal to her, and they effect her in a deep way. Most will note that the only time she pulls it back is when she's exercising or about to do something that could otherwise be messy.

Not with your mouth full

It's really gross when people talk with their mouths full. Joey, in particular, can't stand it. You'll never catch her talking or smacking her mouth while she eats and she's quick to correct others for it as well.

Hobbies

Yoga

Joey loves doing yoga. She finds it peaceful and relaxing, and it doesn't hurt that her husband's been known to get turned on watching her do it. It's demanding past a certain point, but this is something she does because she loves the way she feels doing it and how she feels afterwards.

Running

Running is something she's done since high school. She's always enjoyed going out for a run, and she even uses it as outlet for thinking when she gets upset.

Dancing

Dancing is one of those things that allows her to express herself and get lost in a moment, she loves to do it, and she loves it even more when her husband takes her out. Whether it's with a partner or not, she believes that it can be incredibly therapeutic and is going to work with the Brooks to see about allowing a few more "everyone" dances.

Skills

Music • Very Advanced

Joey is incredible when it comes to music. It's one of those things she's devoted her life to, and she couldn't have imagined doing it differently. She'd love to be able to share that love with others on the ranch, whether that's kids in her groups or other adults, it doesn't matter.

Foreign Languages • Very Advanced

Joey speaks a multitude of languages starting first with English, which is what she learned from birth. She is also fluent in the following: Mandarin, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, French, Italian, Japanese, Hindi and ASL. She's far from mastering every language though, and she's working on the following: Arabic, and German.

Cooking • advanced

Originally, this said "sex" at the behest of her husband, but then we changed it to cooking which comes in at right about the same level of advanced. Joey's an excellent cook, and even more, she enjoys doing it, especially for her loved ones.

Interests

Exotic Dancing

Yeah, you read that right. Striptease. It's just an interest, and she's not going to go out and become a stripper or something like that, but a girl has to have interests, right? And I'm sure her husband will love this one.

Cultures Around the World

Joey loves learning about different cultures and traditions around the world. She thinks it's wonderful that we have so much knowledge and that even though cultures vary, much of the time the basics are very similar. It's the little things that change, and those little things matter, and it's what makes a difference.

Aromatherapy

She's dabbled, which is why it's mostly just an interest and not a hobby. She doesn't know a whole lot, except for the very basics, and she's interested in learning more over time.

Desired Plots

Family Reunion

Every year, her parents come out to visit the kids. She doesn't get along with them well, but she tries to keep it together for the one week they're a present and consistent nuisance. She doesn't want her kids to know that she struggles in her relationship with her parents, because she believes that it sets a bad precedent. After all, she expects her children to show her and Matt respect, so she should do the same with her own parents.

When they tell her that she's wasting her talent and brain working with the kids on the ranch, it's going to be the last straw. While Joey is incredibly talented, it's her belief that affecting changes in these teenagers life is that exact opposite of wasting her talents. Things are going to get tense, and I can't wait.

Then comes the bomb that they plan to stay in Trader's Bend. In the words of Joey Bennet "Lord help us all!".

** I will be requesting her parents. **

What would you know about it?

As much as Joey loves her son, and wouldn't change a thing, she's a big supporter of children (teenagers) waiting to have sex. She's only ever had one partner in her entire life, but she's watched people go down a very different path with that, and she feels that it's best that people wait until they are at least a legal adult to have children. Because being a teen parent is hard.

I'd love it if there was a teenager that approached her in an antagonistic way, asking her what it is that she knows about being a teen parent. Not everyone will necessarily know that she was one, and I'd love to have a tense start up to a relationship that may become something more. Because Joey knows a lot about being a teen parent, and how hard that is.

Personal to Me

Joey's music is actually quite a personal thing to her. She doesn't mind teaching students about music or theory, but the stuff that she creates is personal for her her, and I'd love it if one of the students walked up on her in a personal moment and heard her playing (probably a guitar her husband she made, which are hand-crafted and made for the individual, not to mention expensive and sought after all over the country). It would be a moment in which she could open up and explain to one of the kids just how personal music really is/can be.

Kate grew up as the only daughter in a semi-traditional Korean-American family. Her mother pushed her to study the piano until Kate thought her fingers (or her ears) were going to bleed, while her father encouraged her to follow her dreams. AS a result, she left the piano behind and became a red and white belt in Judo (6th dan) and a black belt in TaeKwondo (5th dan).

She went to college to be a social worker after she helped her best friend in childhood escape from his abusive parents. He survived because of her, and the feeling that it was possible for her to make that big a difference in the lives of people she cared about drove her to do something bigger with her life, to continue to put that effort into "saving children."

It was through her job that she met her current boyfriend, Josh Tanner. He is a police officer who helped her on a couple of cases, a man who had already adopted as a single father and who would later do so again. He inspired her, and the two of them have been together for the past ten years. Kate doesn't always agree with what he does (he's a struggling drug addict who may also have an alcohol problem), but she loves him nonetheless, and therefore she is strongly committed to Josh.

Kate is what she likes to refer to as a "badass social worker." She rides a Harley Davidson (two, actually -- her Softail and her Lowrider) without sitting behind a man to do so; She is a master of Judo; She has taken control of her own destiny without expectations from other people. She does very well for herself in the general sense of the word, and she believes that everybody has the opportunity to make the most out of their lives, and therefore that they should push to be the best that they can be.

Kate & Joey
I don't have much for Joey right off the bat. We've plotted the heck out of her in person for so many years that I just can't imagine putting much more at her at this point. You know that she and Kate are friends. It doesn't bear consistent repetition. Kate will want to help Jen and Rid and blah blah blah. Remember to plot her *out* with the other Pathfinder students. That's the best way of making sure she gets the attention that she needs!

Joey & Jason
He won't exactly know what to make of her, and that in and of itself will make him nervous. I mentioned this in a previous shipper reply, but it bears repeating. Jason pushes boundaries because he likes having something on every one, especially his authority figures. If he knows how to get under their skin or push their buttons, in his mind, he has the upper hand. Just knowing the line isn't enough--crossing it is what he enjoys most. Coming into contact with someone like Joey, who won't let him do anything but toe that lines and who won't play into his BS will be something entirely new for him. As I mentioned, he won't know what to make of it. In fact, it's likely that he'll keep pushing and testing, trying to get her to crack.

Walking away would leave him confused, at first. Then he'd probably be a bit angry. If he can't get under her skin, how will he know how to work her?
