Jo is currently studying towards her Bachelor degree in early childhood education. She also works full time at New Shoots in the four-year-old room.

“I love working with this age group of children, I have lots of fun learning from and helping them, develop and learn the skills needed for their future learning.

I am the mother of four beautiful girls ranging in age from 19 down to 6.  I have a real passion for early childhood development and love my work.

I am a fun and friendly person and I love to spend time with my family and friends. We enjoy BBQ’s, the beach, camping and biscuiting on the lakes. I also enjoy sports and I play for Papamoa women's football team every Sunday during the season.”
