Jo Shepherd

Jo is the mother of a 14-year old daughter (Anna) who has short bowel syndrome. Anna has been on home parenteral nutrition for over 13 years, so as a family they have a wealth of experience of the practicalities of this. The Shepherds are a family of five, two weary parents and three very active children who enjoy a wide variety of sports and activities.

Jo herself used to work in clinical trials & now sits on the parent advisory group for the NPEU BAPS-CASS (neonatal surgery) as well as working in the science department of a local secondary school.”
