Thinking of innovative ways to engage her participants is something that comes naturally to Jo in her role as Director of Nursing and Internal Case Manager at NeuroRestorative Kentucky’s program in Ashland. In addition to providing individuals the medical support they need to grow, Jo always finds ways to help them engage with the community. Whether it’s planning a fundraiser or a fall festival, Jo comes up with ways to enhance the lives of participants and expose them to different activities and learning opportunities. From leading participants on a home repair project out in the community to starting the Ashland program’s Brain Injury Support Group, Jo is dedicated to improving the lives of others.
“I’ve never met anyone in my life that does so much for others. No matter what happens in her world; for example, a loved one with an illness or death in the family, Jo always puts those in need first. She truly deserves this recognition,” said Miranda Spillman, Licensed Practical Nurse, NeuroRestorative Kentucky.
