About Joanne

My quest for happiness led me to the pages and covers of international fashion magazines as a model and fashion designer; to sing with several bands including Santa Esmeralda; to sign a record deal with Warner Elektra Atlantic and to perform in New York City's nightclubs. I married, had a son and daughter, and moved from New York City to Celebration, Florida. I traveled the world and spent weeks at retreats for yoga teachers, the Sedona Method, and have been certified to teach from the Eckhart Tolle School Of Awakening.  I taught yoga to preschoolers and wrote children's meditations for Nick Junior Magazine, and recently released my memoir "Fashioned: The Secret Life of a Mom." I currently design interiors, and teach yoga and peaceful living.  


I have learned that the world only provides the happiness I am willing to see. It lies within every moment spent in gratitude, acceptance, silence, or awe. 

When my daughter Joy was little, she used to ask me "why isn't there peace on earth?" I was not sure what to answer. All I knew was I could work on finding it within myself. I often wonder if everyone on earth did the same, if her question would be answered.
