Jo obtained two Bachelor of Arts degrees from Oregon State University. After moving to Portland in 1983, Jo worked for PGE as an Analyst, retiring in 2014 after 30 years of service.
Jo and her family moved into the David Douglas School District in 1987. Her four children attended David Douglas schools and all graduated from David Douglas High School.
