She has a BA (Hons) in Performing Arts from the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts and has worked in theatre for 13 years as a performer, choreographer, movement director and teacher. Jo plays the fiddle and is a pioneer of the Adventure Folk movement in Scotland.

Jo started teaching for EYT in early 2016 and took over as co-director from Larah in July 2018.
