Jo is enthusiastic about contributing to positive urban design and planning outcomes for growing and changing built environments.
Jo joined 4Sight in September 2022 as a Planner based in the Auckland office. She works in the Planning team to assist with preparing and processing resource consents.
Previously Jo worked as an in-house planning consultant for private developers and actively engaged in various land and housing developments in the Auckland region. She has 10 years’ experience in urban planning research in Canada and New Zealand and gained a PhD in Planning from The University of Auckland in 2022. Her research focused on urban form analysis, built environment management and urban regenerations in cross-cultural contexts and she has also published articles in international peer-reviewed journals. After spending some time in academia, she is enthusiastic about the different perspectives to consider when working as a planner in the consultancy industry.
Away from the office, Jo enjoys reading, painting and going on long walks. Travel is on her agenda, as she particularly enjoys the opportunity to experience different cultures.
