“Joan’s career in education spanned 30 years, beginning as a high school teacher, then evolving into senior management at the global educational enterprise, Landmark Education, where she touched the lives of thousands by assisting them to find ways to fulfill their dreams and aspirations for their relationships, health, career, leadership, self-expression and satisfaction.”
