Jo Gevers - Operations Manager
Jo was born in Edinburgh and grew up in a musical family, learning violin and then bassoon at school, and singing in all sorts of contexts. She trained as a Speech and Language Therapist in Sheffield, came to Dundee on a 6 month contract over 30 years ago, and has been here ever since. After a break from work to bring up her family, she worked in office management for several years before returning to Speech Therapy. This brought her to Douglas, working with staff, children and families in Claypotts Nursery for two years, and she is excited to be keeping up this connection as she joins Big Noise Douglas.
Jo still sings at every opportunity – the older the music, the better.
