Jo took an HND in hotel and catering management at Birmingham College of Food. She worked for several years running events at venues such as Edgbaston and Lords Cricket ground, Lingfield racecourse and the City of London Livery Halls.
She continued her education and converted her HND into a 1st-class honours degree in Hospitality Management from the University of West London.
Whilst taking some time out to raise her three children, Jo took on part time teaching and studied for a Post Graduate Certificate in Education.
Her interests have evolved, and she completed a MSc in Human Nutrition from Oxford Brookes and in 2022 successfully submitted her PhD on the effects of an experimental food label and its influence on adolescent food choices.
Currently, Jo teaches fitness classes and specialises in strength and Pilates, reviews Journal articles and guest lectures for a number of universities.
