Jo has appeared on a number of television shows across networks such as the ABC, Comedy Channel, Network Ten, Seven and the Nine Network.

To add to her busy schedule, Jo produces her own online interview videos series, On Location, and her own podcast, The Unknown Podcast, both of which can be found on her website Jo is also a sought-after keynote speaker and corporate coach in the areas of personal brand, resilience, mindfulness, and presentation skills, bringing with her great humour, an honest and open sharing of her many experiences in the media, and an insight into a variety of methods that can lead to sustained success.

In addition to Jo being one of our ambassadors, she is also an ambassador for the Ronald McDonald House, The Line campaign, The Smith Family and Big Issue, a patron for The Lighthouse Foundation and supports the Salvation Army and the Sacred Heart Mission.

Jo has a strong meditation practise which she shares with her daughter Willow, and a passion for sharing this life-long tool with as many people as possible.

The Smiling Mind app can CHANGE. YOUR. LIFE. Want to turn torturous negative self-talk, crippling anxiety, insomnia and strained relationships into self-compassion, confidence, restful sleep and joyful and loving relationships? I did, with mindfulness. And this app REALLY helped me get there. I first came across Smiling Mind as a way of introducing meditation to my daughter, Willow. The kids’ section of the app is next level amazing. But for grown-ups, it breaks down mindfulness and meditation into something that is not only manageable and achievable, but outright addictive. I’m so excited to be working with Smiling Mind, because I want every one to experience the same clarity, calm and contentment that mindfulness has brought to my life.
