Jo comes to the Roots to Thrive team with a nursing background in palliative, psychiatric, medical and minor-surgical patient care. Years of disrupted mental health inspired her to seek healing in a variety of alternative treatments. This lived experience informs her deeply compassionate approach and ability to create healing connection with others who struggle. Having been a participant in the first RTT-KAT group, she has found deep resonance with the principles, practices, and processes of Roots to Thrive. She is incredibly honoured and excited to pass the gifts forward.
