Jo is an experienced developer and lecturer, graduating in Software engineering from Birmingham University in 1987. Before co-founding Feabhas, she worked in both the automotive and defence sectors, before taking a role as Technical Manager for a CASE tool company, which involved tech support and also introduced Jo to teaching. 

Jo’s technical passion has always been on the process side of development – ensuring good design practise and she lectured on OO design and development for many years, through a variety of OO techniques. 

Today, Jo no longer delivers our courses but focuses on the whole customer experience at Feabhas. 

Her mission is to ensure everyone who works with Feabhas – whether as a course delegate or course organiser, gets the best service possible. It’s not just about delivering top quality training; it is also about ensuring every step along the way - from enquiry, to understanding training requirements, to delivery - runs smoothly and professionally, for everyone involved.
