Jackie Eigner & Joan Walters- “From Victim to Victor: Stalked for 30 Years”

In what is almost certainly one of the longest running stalking cases in US history, Joan Walters has endured unspeakable injustice at the hands of one man - Lester Lyle Worthington. They were never lovers. They were never friends. They were never more than neighbours. But that all changed one day in 1988 when she found him breaking into her home. From happy housewife and mother, Joan was thrust into Lester's perverse world of lust and obsession: a world that would challenge her marriage, her sense of self and ultimately her will to live. Now - nearly 30 years, one hitman, three criminal trials, and a myriad of intriguing twists later - Joan is speaking up for victims of this selfish crime. Joined by her daughter, Jackie, Joan will share her journey from a broken woman to an empowered advocate for victims of abuse. Her story is detailed in the book Violent Obsession: The Stalker Next Door.


Panel 3- Professional Speakers, Coaches, and Consultants

Moderated by Katy Temple

Workshop 7: Rashidah D. Taylor-Senior, MBA – The Roadmap to Better

We all have experienced a day where we felt like life was happening beyond our control and we had no clear direction on which way to go. There is a Roadmap to pursuing 'better' every single day and I will guide us through a step-by-step guide to the destination.
