For Jo, it's all about kids. Hanging out with them, learning from them, helping them. For 7 years she delivered the program "Starting a Social Media Conversation" with partner Joe Whitbread in schools, listening to kids about how they use social media and the challenges they face. She now delivers the program independently.

Jo is co-founder and Executive Director of Journey Youth Creative) - an innovative space in Lacombe where kids come to play video games, make TikToks and learn YouTube. She is also founder of JoOutLoud Youth Resilience Coaching, a professional speaker, and an advocate for kids and coach to parents who want collaborative solutions to their family challenges.


Jo loves to listen to the stories of kids and work with them to find solutions to their ideas, and their challenges. With a degree in Psychology focused on motivation and personality, and a minor in Sociology from the University of Calgary, she's able to connect the dots for parents and kids in a healthy, fun, way.

"The Jo(e)s" disbanded as a professional speaking team in June 2023, so each person could pursue the path that aligned with their experience, education, and passion.

Joe Whitbread now delivers a program for high school students regarding Personal Branding and using social media to gain opportunity. You can find out more about this program at
