Jo has a strong commitment and passion for patient care and is a dedicated patient advocate. Her previous experience includes dialysis nursing, general surgical care, critical care, and trauma care at Saint Alphonsus in Boise. “A nurse is someone who is strong enough to tolerate everything, and soft enough to understand everyone.”
Jo is from the small town of Filer, ID near Twin Falls where she enjoyed the small-town life. After moving to Boise, she fell in love with the “big town” changes that it brought to her life and is proud to be a lifetime Idahoan. She happily married her husband, Tant, in December of 2017. In her free time, they love to fish, hike, swim, and do just about anything outdoors.
