Jo Ridsdale
Branch position:
Publicity Officer

Jo, husband Jason and their 3 children are based on a farm in the mid-north.

Having grown up on a pastoral property in the Flinders Ranges,  Jo & her siblings completed their primary schooling through Port Augusta School of the Air before attending boarding school for her secondary years.

Her children spent a couple of years on both RICE and Port Augusta School of the Air before enrolling in a rural area school.

Her mother was a strong role model in her formative years, having been a very active member of the SOTA school committees, ICPA and sitting in many executive roles through that time as well as many other volunteer roles on committees within the community.

This influence has seen that commitment continue with her children and I have always been willing to give my time to roles that I can contribute to. I have been a member of both the North West and Flinders Ranges ICPA branch for a number of years and in the role of Publicity Officer for the last 3.

I enjoy spending time with my family and getting home to the family property to help out when I can.
