About Me

Chief Executive Officer

Jo took up her role as CEO of Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board on 1 January 2021, and was previously Chief Executive of Mackay Hospital and Health Service in Queensland, Australia.

Jo is a long-term health professional with more than 30 years of healthcare experience in the UK and Australia. She has held senior positions working in hospitals of all sizes and for the UK Department of Health and is passionate about providing more services to people in their own community.

Jo holds a BA (Hons) in History, a Postgraduate Diploma in Health Service Management and a Postgraduate Certificate in Health Service Economics.

Outside of work, Jo enjoys walking with her new puppies, cooking and reading and is keen to ski (snow not water!) Even though she has recently been transformed into stand-up paddle boarding.
