On a Personal Note:
Before attending law school, Jo worked in the public and private sector. In the public sector, she assisted children who were abused and neglected. Eventually, she worked in a pilot project addressing the needs of victims of domestic violence from the time the crime was reported through prosecution of the offender. It was through her work in those positions that Jo decided she wanted to become an attorney.
