Meet Jo our newest Support Ambassador

Jo is very new to the world of alopecia. She was diagnosed with alopecia areata in July 2019. This was quite a surprise and challenge for her to overcome. Jo works as a registered psychologist and is dynamic, engaging and solution focussed. She had to apply many of the strategies she learnt as a psychologist to deal with her own hair loss situation.

Jo has been heavily involved in volunteering throughout her life, mainly in Surf Life Saving and pet therapy services. She saw volunteering with AAAF as a positive and beneficial opportunity, which in turn has helped her deal with her own alopecia journey. 

Jo is very willing to support others in the alopecia community and more than happy to provide suggestions of psychologists who work with alopecia clients.

Jo enjoys exercising, spending time with her partner and family, cooking and caring for her pet therapy dog Ralphy. She can be contacted at
