Jo began learning Handwriting Analysis in 1986 while working as a Certified Alcohol Counselor in Paterson, New Jersey. Incorporating handwriting analysis into her work with recovering heroin addicts opened a door for learning more about their personalities in ways she could not have imagined. Learning how significant each person's identity is has helped Jo recognize their essence in a deeper, more profound way. "I account my skill to looking into a person's soul, their essence, their truest identity, their positive attributes that run rampant all across the page…"
Handwriting Analysis is a pure science in the sense that it links hand with brain, thoughts with emotions, heart with soul. I truly believes in its power of healing, cleansing, and the ability to tell one's story. The benefits of knowing oneself so intimately is not something taught in school, but a gift that you carry for a lifetime. Through my readings I hope to empower you, revealing your strengths and weaknesses, physical illness, blockages in the heart or brain, or any symptom that the body internalizes so that you may become a more effective author in your life story.
