Jo originally joined as a trustee because she wanted to become involved in a local community based charity. She is most impressed by the passion and commitment shown by all the wonderful volunteers who give their time to put on such excellent events.

She is a finance professional, working at an international investment bank. She spent 11 years as a credit trader, and is now Executive Director running the global credit valuation control group. She took a sabbatical in 2015 and worked as investment manager for a social investment fund, helping charities and social enterprises to use investment to become more financially sustainable.

Jo is also trustee for OnePlusOne, a national relationship charity, who use research, training and online resources to promote healthy relationship skills. She holds an MA in Maths and Management Studies from Trinity College, Cambridge University.
