She is an analytical thinker who enjoys intellectual challenges that are unconventional thriving on solving complex problems. Turning personal adversity into understanding has given her a unique perspective on how to see the world.

Paradoxically, she is well-equipped to lead and motivate groups of people, at home undertaking the work, and gifted at setting up both detailed and high-level plans for others. Her investigative side makes me introspective, inquisitive, and an avid seeker of knowledge, which are intrinsically solitary activities, but her passion for thought leadership inspires her to encourage others to embrace new ideas from an empathetic perspective.

Jo’s team puts an exceptional focus on customer success. Jo is time poor and heavily relied upon- often drowning under the pressure to help, but She would not have it any other way.
