Jo was born and raised in the Chicagoland area and after two years of attending Indiana State University, she enlisted in the Marine Corps in the fall of 2016 to find another way to pursue her collegiate education. In May 2017, she received orders to Fort Worth, TX where she served with a recruiting command for four years, before transitioning from active duty to the reserves. In her time, she not only received her duty station, but found that Fort Worth became her home.
She received her Associates of Science in Criminal Justice Administration from Columbia College and is on her way to finish her B.A. in Criminology with a specialization in Forensic Psychology with The Chicago School of Professional Psychology.
On her personal time, she enjoys all water and outdoor activities as well as volunteering and engaging in all community involvement opportunities.
