Coming from a family of actors, Jo didn't have much choice as to what she would end up doing with her life.
Starting at the age of 4 in the school nativity play (insisting on playing Mary, because she was the only character with a line), continuing all through High School and College and eventually on to the main stage of life.

Jo then moved into straight theatre and comedy, performing the role of Helena in John Osborne's "Look Back In Anger," and comic farces such as "Boeing-Boeing," and "Perfect Wedding."
She has also co written three original productions "Dick & I" - a parody on Richard the III, "Happily Ever Laughter," and "The Fugard Fest of Comedy," which was performed at the prestigious Athol Fugard Theatre in Cape Town.
Jo was nominated twice for her stage performances - the role of Demeter in "Cats," followed by Amber in "Hairspray." Most recently Jo has co produced and starred in the Neil LaBute play “Some Girls,” for the Secret Rose Theatre in NoHo.

This madness, accompanied by general "hard sell" and "soft sell" radio and television commercial VO's. Schizophrenia is starting to set in, so you'll probably need to hire her before the end of the year. She is currently voicing characters for Disney and video games in the USA.
