From her home life as a child, to learning to handle fights and bullying in eight different schools in three different countries, to living with danger in inner cities of the USA, and being a survivor of violence. Jo learned strategies for healthy living by training in martial arts and Traditional Chinese medicine. She was selected for specialized trainings in programs with the US Department of State, the US Department of Defense and the US Peace Corps Response team. Jo worked and lived in the conflict/war zones of Afghanistan, Ukraine, Iraq and northern Africa and has been an integral part of reconciliation and negotiation efforts in six countries.
