Meet our devoted executive members
I have been on boards and executives before for Business Networking International, the Andersons Bay Basketball Club, and Basketball Otago so I have experience with running and being part of executives and helping make operational change/benefit for members. Being fifth generation of my family to work in our family business, and now also having worked for a corporate organisation.
I have a unique perspective that allows me to see the best of both worlds, as well as indicators of what needs to change. As embalmers and funeral directors our primary duty and our common trait is care/caring, I am passionate about making change to make sure our embalmers are looked after. With the best technology, training, and network around them to make sure they succeed, and are able to care for our communities.
Jo has always enjoyed seminars, learning new skills, and sharing knowledge with fellow embalmers.
I have currently been in the funeral industry for a total of 17.5 years. The first 2.5 years as a Funeral Director/Assistant and the remaining 15 years solely focused on the mortuary aspect of the industry.
