27 Mar Joan Kelley Walker – Seek Out Mentors!
Life is a journey – not a destination. Reflecting on my life I realize all the parts coalesce to make the whole. Everything I have done has brought me to this present moment. I started my career as a model and it evolved from there. My hands were in a diverse assortment of pots working in fashion, entertainment, journalism and media. I fell in love, got married and became a wife. I had children and became a mother. There have been so many things in between. I’ve always loved fashion and engaged in charitable initiatives. My family has supported World Vision for as long as I can remember and contribute to a number of distinguished causes. Giving back is vital.
Fast forward in time and I was presented with the opportunity to be a member of The Real Housewives of Toronto. I was a very private person at the time so it was a bit out of my comfort zone, but I genuinely embraced the opportunity. Even though it only aired one season the show opened new doors and really made me think, ‘what do I want to do? What are my passions?’ ‘What is the bigger picture and how I can make an impact?’ Now this is my time! I have combined fashion and philanthropy to create the Joan Kelley Walker Collection. It has been this small-town Canadian girl’s dream to see this vision come to life. Follow your heart because dreams do come true.READ FULL ARTICLE
