Smith, Jo

My name is Jo Smith and I will be the Student Advocate and School Nurse for Uwharrie Charter Academy.  My career has taken me into many unexplored areas for nurses including President of three family practice medical facilities and various consulting positions.  Currently I am founder/co-owner of a health and wellness consulting company.  My previous experience with Moore County Schools in the mid 1990’s allowed me to combine my nursing and psychology degrees to provide nursing and counseling for high risk students.  I am very excited to work once again with students in the educational setting.  I am married to my high school sweetheart who is a retired pastor and we have two children, Leslie and Matt.  I have also been blessed with two fantastic grandchildren, twins, Leah and Aiden who are seven years old.  I am looking forward to a great year.
