Jo qualified as a Registered General Nurse in 1990 at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford. She qualified as a Registered Midwife in 1994, and later trained as a spiritual companion to the dying. Jo has had many roles in and around healthcare during her working life, including as a Complementary Therapist for a Hospice and a Hospice at Home service. She has volunteered as a Butterfly herself, set up a Team of Butterfly Volunteers at one of our Partner Hospitals and Co-ordinated the team. She loves her current role as the Wellbeing Manager for ART.
Having had a number of experiences supporting family and friends at the end of life, good and bad; in hospital, hospice and at home – Jo passionately believes that it is the small acts of kindness that are remembered when someone is dying and Butterfly Volunteers and/or a listening ear make a huge difference to so many people.
Jo is married to Paul, they have two children and live in Hertfordshire.
