Despite her preference for working behind-the-scenes at the AFTS, Jo takes centre-stage as an accredited Storyteller with Australian Storytellers; as an accredited Professional Guide with the Institute of Australian Tour Guides; and as a museum theatre creative, workshop leader and public speaker.
Among her passions are literature, history, creative writing, intangible culture, storytelling – and, of course, fairy tales.
