Jo graduated from the University of Melbourne in 2003 and moved into mixed practice at Tallangatta Veterinary Clinic. After six years and the arrival of their first child, Jo and her husband moved back to her hometown of Wangaratta.
Jo has successfully navigated the challenge of working as a veterinary surgeon and managing a business, whilst raising three children and working with her spouse!
Jo takes a huge amount of joy and satisfaction in helping her team develop and grow. She has discovered that developing her own leadership skills has been the single most powerful tool for improving herself and her business.
Through creating leverage within her business, Jo enjoys serving on several community boards and committees, including as President of the Northeast Region Preschool Association board and the Animal Ethics Committee for GOTAFE.
Jo spends her spare time on her farm, enjoying a campfire, reading, and trying not to fall off her horses!
