Jo-Anne began her career with UCH Foundation as a campaign assistant early in 1995. That same year, she was moved into the role of administrator and soon after was named Executive Director. She has been a member of the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) since 1999. Jo-Anne and many of her family members have a long history with the Uxbridge community. She also has a lengthy relationship with the hospital. In fact, she was born at the Uxbridge Cottage Hospital and delivered both of her sons there too. Having spent the majority of her life in the Uxbridge area, with the exception of a few years that she and her husband lived and worked in Toronto, Jo-Anne is very familiar with how important the hospital is to the residents of the community and to those who support it. She takes great pride in getting to know the donors and understanding their many reasons for giving.
