Jo studied Public Communication at the University of Technology in Sydney and has since worked mainly in the healthcare sector. Jo is motivated by contributing to projects that make a difference in the community and is happiest when her free time is spent exploring the great outdoors – in Australia and abroad.

Proud achievement

Helping to raise awareness about some of Australia’s key health issues… and joining Bhubesi Pride Foundation for the full 2017 expedition, despite never having played rugby! Maximising specific professional expertise, Jo will be assisting Bhubesi Pride Foundation and G4S Africa, alongside the charity’s coaching program.

Jo’s goal

“I’m passionate about improving community health and believe participating in sports is a one-stop way a person can help meet their fitness, social and emotional wellbeing needs.”
