Jo graduated from the Christine Blundel Makeup Academy (CB*MA) London, having previously worked alongside the Army, serving a 6 years tour in Germany. She decided to make this change to follow her dream at the tender age of 40 (I'ts never too late)!


Since then she's worked on a variety of projects across film, TV, commercial and theatre.  


She says she simply loves her job and feels that her 'Northern nutty humour' and maturity helps create the perfect working relationship with both cast and crew.

I could say that I'm hard working, conscientious, determined and professional but then so could "anyone" so i'll say this...


I have worked with soldiers, who would test anybody's patience. I have dealt with high-ranking officers who behave like schoolboys and really should know better.  I have been the lower ranking tea girl in an office full of tea'oholics and I have cycled my way through countries with more undulations that I'd care to remember, still it was for charity, and as my Mum always says 'You have a true Northern girl's spirit' So if all that doesnt make me thick skinned, as strong as an ox and a great team player, I don't know what does...!
