Jo left school as a teenager to care for her mother after she had a stroke. Jo had not been successful in school because of her dyslexia, but she had the ability to see and feel everything in scent. Her at-home beauty business and hand-made products became popular, and word of her talent spread until an international brand was born. After the sale of her company and the birth of her son, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent treatment in New York. 

Recognised for her industry and entrepreneurial expertise, Jo is a highly sort-after and renowned International Speaker - regularly sharing her knowledge and insights with audiences around the world, highlighting her entrepreneurial journey and how she intends to change the way the world wears fragrance.
