About Jo

Jo is a “retired” librarian, analyst, and project manager, enjoying the freedom to express her life’s purpose – to share joy and to be of service to others – as an Awareness Coach and Reiki Master, communicating through podcasts, books, motivational and inspirational public speaking, and other services to people and animals on their life journeys. 

As an Awareness Coach, Jo helps people become more aware of themselves, their inner beliefs and thoughts, and their world. She provides her coaching services in two ways: (1) She has a free weekly podcast on Blog Talk Radio, called “Living a Dream” (Tuesdays, 4:00 p.m. (Pacific US Time) / 7:00 p.m. (Eastern US Time)); and (2) She coaches individually over the phone or Zoom, at a time convenient for the person and at the frequency of the person’s choosing. There is a modest fee for these individual coaching sessions.

Jo is a Reiki Master and owner of Reiki Resonance and Renewal, LLC, through which she provides Reiki Energy Healing sessions in Lincoln City, Oregon, as well as distance healing throughout the world.  Jo has a certificate in Mental Health First Aid, and is a member of the Hands On Trade Association, the Center for Reiki Research, and the Reiki Healing Association. Please see her website, www.ReikiResonanceandRenewal.com for details and to make appointments.

Under her penname, Megan Erin Galloway, Jo wrote an inspirational book, titled Pieces: Help for Your Life Journey, for other adult survivors of child abuse, was a guest speaker on the 14 February 2018 and the 3 October 2018 episodes of the National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse (NAASCA) radio program, and is the Oregon Ambassador for NAASCA. She presented a free multimedia workshop, titled Breathing the Joy of Life, in several cities along the Oregon Coast. Please see her website for her penname, www.Megan-Erin-Galloway.com

Inspired by a trip to Seuss Landing at Universal Orlando, Jo wrote a children’s book, entitled Hello, Dear Flowers!  From the Amazon website:

“Through brilliant color photographs of a variety of flowers, young children are introduced to concepts such as: big/little, small/large, colors, and flower images and names. Comparing flowers to people introduces young children to larger concepts such as: people of different colors, people from different countries, and people with disabilities all being welcome in the ‘garden.’ A great book to read to your young children for a fun learning experience.”

In addition, resurrecting her former small business, Jo’s Tartan Patterns, Jo and Donna Morris have joined together to form DJ’s Tartan Creations, a new online business featuring a variety of hand-made tartan items created by Donna and Jo. Please see their website, www.DJsTartanCreations.com.
