They previously took classes in Syracuse University's Higher Education program and served as the Graduate Assistant for the LGBT RC for the 2017-2018 school year.

Jo’s current work with the center includes event planning, advising Embody, a discussion group for transgender/non-binary/gender non-conforming people, and overseeing seven student employees.

Prior to arriving in Syracuse, they attended Cornell University, where they received their Bachelor’s Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with a focus in diversity education and minors in Business and Asian American Studies. They are passionate about working with queer college students and students of color and focus their work on intersectionality and bettering the college experience for those with marginalized identities.
