Hi I'm Jo! It seems such a long time ago I won the bursary back in 2007 and wow am I thankful!

The bursary linked me up with my mentor Annalisa, a body worker in London.

Annalisa sponsored me through countless courses, developing me and my skills.

I graduated in 2011 in Sports Therapy. I have spent the last 4 seasons working part time in Premiership Rugby with Exeter Chiefs. Additionally since graduating I have undertaken my teacher training at Exeter College and lecturing on the job in Sport Therapy, injuries, massage, anatomy, nutrition etc.

As well as all of that I launched my own business, Go4Jo, working from home or mobile, treating injuries, aches and pains.

So now for the even more exciting bit... September 2013.. I taken a massive step of faith.. I am now working for myself and growing my own business. Annalisa and Martin have linked me up with Six Physio in London, where I will be working 3 days a week and then working building the business in Devon in rest of the week.

Long term.. My dream is to set up a retreat, a place where people can chill out, have treatments, fitness classes, wellbeing cafe, counselling, child care... an affordable place where a difference can be made in lives, people can have time and learn to value themselves again.. | Martin Gill 07983 478571 | Mandy Parker 07834 771818
