Jo was born in Northern California. At 15 she moved to Cape Cod, MA where she finished high school. After graduating from Smith College with a BA in sociology, she worked a range of jobs including running a fundraising office for non-profits, and managing the office of an MSP in Boulder.
Most recently she’s been teaching social and natural science to primary school students in Almería, Spain, in addition to giving private violin lessons, and teaching English online to children in China. When she’s not eating Indian or Mexican food, Jo enjoys exploring new hiking trails, kickboxing, reading, and finding new art projects to work on.
