Jo is a Maine native who moved to the Jackson area after college and several years in Stowe, Vermont.  She grew up in family where resource conservation was the norm and has integrated that into her adult life.

Jo has a B.S. in Business and Environmental Studies and currently works as sales representative for a beer and wine distributor, as well as a ski instructor. In past positions she has managed an online farmers’ market and helped a large Vermont ice cream company calculate their carbon footprint. Outside of work, she enjoys hiking, skiing, biking, fishing, foraging, cooking and reading about the West. She has spent four summers working on a local organic farm and has loved embracing our unique growing season by canning and preserving the harvest.
