Her older brother, Dick became disc jockey. She went to Saint Agnes Academy which is a catholic grade and high school.

Joey`s career began while she was still a child, appearing in her father`s show “The Merry Mailman”. Afterwards, she made her Broadway debut in “The Sound of Music”, and the same year started appearing on TV in “The Perry Como Show”. During the early years of her career, Joey had numerous appearances in other variety shows, such as “The Dean Martin Show”, “Andy Williams Show”, “The Ed Sullivan Show, “The Hollywood Palace”, and “This is Tom Jones”, among others, all of which increased her net worth, and her popularity as well.

In the 1960s, she made her screen debut in an episode of the TV series “Route 66” (1960), which was followed by an appearance in “The Virginian” three years later. She made her film debut the same year in “Twilight of Honor”, and continued to appear in films during the 1960s, including “Where Love Has Gone” (1964), “My Blood Runs Cold” (1965), “Of Mice and Men” (1968), and “The Ballad of Andy Crocker” (1969), all of which increased her net worth to a large degree.
