A daughter of a top executive, she was expected to follow in her “big” sister’s footsteps, and keep to the rules. She did anything but that. Joanne talked her way into going to a college in Europe and then became entangled in a physical and emotional tug of war that took a shocking turn.From skiing at world famous resorts in Switzerland, to the ritzy Champs-Elysees Boulevard in Paris, the red-light district in Amsterdam, and many other European marvels, Joanne and her college friends experienced the full gamut of a semester abroad. Both individually and as a group, a thin tight rope was walked, barely balanced by a web of troubles, including a near-death accident and many close calls.Joanne Jeffers VeeckIn addition to authoring three children’s books, Joanne co-authored Stepping Stones to Success with Deepak Chopra, Jack Canfield, and a few other experts in the field of Positive Psychology.
