Jo Collinge

Parkinson’s Disease

Diagnosed five days before her 47th birthday, Jo decided to take early retirement from her work as a business process analyst at Lloyds TSB to spend time with her husband and children.

Since leaving the bank Jo has become a part time campaigner for Parkinson’s UK, lobbying the UK Government and Members of Parliament on matters affecting people with Parkinson’s (PwP’s).  Jo has worked with the European Parkinson’s Disease Association on two campaigns and is a patient advocate for The Cure Parkinson’s Trust.

In her spare (little) time Jo likes to write short stories, which are not connected with Parkinson’s in any way, and hopes to have these published one day.
