About the Speaker

Originally from the UK, Jo grew up on the edge of the Peak District National Park and spent most of her childhood in and around nature and animals. Her entire career has focused on education, either in the classroom as a teacher or administrator, or working in organizations like the BBC and Stanford University where education is their business. Jo loves California’s wild landscapes and raised her three children hiking, camping, kayaking, and exploring at every opportunity. She organized and led many camping trips, both as a teacher and as a parent, so has lots of experience helping make sure everyone is safe, comfortable and happy camping in California. Retired from the classroom, Jo now works for Bay Area Lyme and helps get the word out about tick-borne illnesses through education, writing blogs and articles, and supporting the organization’s national biobank program. In her spare time, Jo loves hiking in local Bay Area parks or heading up north to Redding to fish or horseback ride with friends.
