Jo-Ann is a true social entrepreneur whose unwavering dedication to empowering, encouraging and supporting women and girls using entrepreneurship as the tool is awe-inspiring. She is also a true gem of a person – the rarest of Rare Birds! It isn’t every day that you have the good fortune to meet someone as warm and genuine as Jo-Ann. I was introduced to Jo-Ann by a colleague and we got to know each over the course of several emails. By the time we sat down for our RareBirds podcast interview, I felt like I was shooting the breeze with an old friend.
