About me!

Hi there

This is a temporary site as I had some technical difficulties with my old site and am in the process of rebuilding.

Please bear with me whilst I take time to get the new one right.

In the meantime a little about me.

I set up my first company Home Jane in 2007. Home Jane was the UK’s first all female home improvement and property maintenance company. The company grew rapidly and won numerous awards over the years.  I sold the company after starting a family and it is with regret that I have found it is no longer trading.

Since starting Home Jane I have written for many magazines and also co-authored a DIY Book called The Girls Guide to DIY which is a witty yet practical DIY guide.

In 2011 I co-presented the Channel 4 television show Make, Do and Mend where I taught contributors how to save money by completing their own DIY tasks.

I am a regular speaker at business events, running sessions on a number of topics including ‘How to Start a Business’ and she mentors a number of young entrepreneurs. Jo also runs a property consulting business helping property buyers and renovators to make the right decisions and interpret builders speak. I currently write for House Beautiful magazine as their DIY expert  and has authored an online DIY course for Skillsology.
