Jojo is known for normalising discussions around our mental health, making it accessible and relatable to all. She is often collaborating with industry experts and her first book, full of toolkits, has been used by many mental health professionals. Her book was an instant bestseller on amazon in several categorises based on pre orders alone. Her agent is Speaker Buzz and Jojo has quickly grown a reputation for having a huge impact even on the most sceptical of people.
