Jo Ashworth is a Kalannie girl through and through. Born and raised in the small Western Australian farming town, some 300 k’s from Perth, she grew up on her parent’s farm. Just like most kids in the area, she went off for boarding school in Perth. Jo studied to become a Mechanical engineer, meeting her husband Wal along the way.
As Jo’s three boys grew up, Jo found ways of becoming a really involved member of the community, eventually becoming a manager of the Kalannie Community Resource Centre. But a career challenge with her son caused Jo to start asking questions, and then started down a journey to the Growing Kalannie project, an initiative that saw Jo become a finalist in the 2020 Agrifutures Rural Woman of the Year awards for Western Australia.
As a Mum, Jo works to challenge her own beliefs and be an amazing model for her boys, encouraging them to discover their own paths in life. She’s passionate about changing the status quo, developing community, and in turn, growing the population of Kalannie.
