Jo has been a Registered Nurse for over 35 years and feels lucky to have found a career in nursing. She trained at the Royal Adelaide Hospital, and then completed her Bachelor of Science (Nursing) at Flinders University in Adelaide.
Most of her professional experience is in emergency nursing, nursing management and practice nursing.
She lived and worked in Canada for 10 years, during which time she gave birth to identical twin boys. A move back to Adelaide saw her return to emergency nursing, this time at Flinders Medical Centre, a major metropolitan trauma centre.
Since relocating to Perth in 2008 she worked for 10 years in General Practice, until she found Baby Steps, which she describes as the best job she has ever had. She feels lucky to be a part of the Baby Steps team, as she really enjoys the contact with babies and new mums, and also assisting with minor procedures.
Outside of work, she loves exploring WA by caravan, spending time with her spoodle dog Bella, and travelling down to the wine regions of the South West and South Australia.
