In April of 2020, Dr. Wilkas Janke’s book, ‘The Protector: A Woman’s Journey from the Secret Service to Guarding VIPs and Working in Some of the World’s Most Dangerous Places’ was published, a memoir of her life as told through the exciting and dangerous missions she accepted as one of the few females in the world of international executive protection agent.
We’ve talked about stalking on this show before but we’ve never had a guest with such a unique perspective. Dr. Mary Beth Wilkas Jenke is a psychologist who worked on a stalking unit and a former Secret service agent who served as a protection agent on numerous government contracts. She is also the only female to ever officially protect a foreign president outside of the United States. With this fascinating background, she talks with Dr. Joni Johnston about what this taught her about stalking and unwanted pursuit.
