Jo joined Action Tutoring as Programme Executive for the Midlands as maternity cover in February 2020. She had already been in Birmingham for nearly three years, having moved here from Germany for postgraduate study in 2017.
Prior to starting with Action Tutoring, she spent time volunteer tutoring and has therefore witnessed the impact one hour a week can have and the difference it can make for both pupil and volunteer. She is excited to join the team in Birmingham, to work together with schools across the city to address the attainment gap and to expand educational opportunities from pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Outside of work, she loves to cycle and is a keen baker of sourdough bread.
