Jo is a licensed physical therapist with more than 40 years of experience and a focus on the geriatric population. Most recently, her practice has been in home health physical therapy, where she performed patient balance and home safety assessments in addition to rehabilitation.
Much of Jo’s work has been in patient education, as director of an acute care hospital rehabilitation department, a clinical supervisor of P.T. students, and facility care manager for adult day care and nursing home facilities. On staff at The Methodist Hospital in Houston, she pioneered rehabilitation protocols for Parkinson’s patients following the development of L-Dopa therapy and assisted in the development of post-stroke protocols.
