Jo graduated from the University of the West of England with a BSc in Conservation Biology. As part of her degree, Jo completed a year long work placement in the Peruvian Amazon in an Eco Lodge. During her time there she collected data for PhD and Masters students across the world and assisted the Park Rangers, as well as working as a tour guide and an English teacher.
Jo worked with ECOSA as a bat surveyor before joining the team full time in 2015, and continues to gain experience in ecological consultancy and survey techniques. Whilst in Peru she became interested in ornithology and continues to expand her bird identification skills in the UK. She holds a Level 1 bat licence.
Outside of work Jo is a skilled Barista and also enjoys swimming, having competed regularly before attending University and taking part in charity events.
