Hi, I'm Jo, I've lived in Whitstable since 2007, but grew up elsewhere in Kent and even as a child would say Whitstable is where I want to live!

I love living by the sea and just being able to see it every day feeds my soul.

I've been working with various local businesses over the last few years and watched them go from strength to strength. I love being a part of and supporting the local community.

I have always had a keen interest in design, from theatre lighting design, to coming up with artistic uses for buttons, hair colour, and art journalling. Over the last few years I have been moving more towards graphic design, making graphics for social media posts or e-mails, making PDF documents 'look pretty' or designing landing pages.

Outside the office, I am a mum to two wonderful girls. You might find me fund-raising for the ME Association, out and about geocaching - the family particularly enjoy the muddy woodland walks that go with this - or taking on crazy challenges like kick-scooting my way along the south coast!

I'm really excited about this new venture and having the opportunity to help more small businesses.
