A Mother’s Journey with Jo Moseley

Ep.31 15/04/2021

“We were just walking around the supermarket, I was a single mum, both my parents were going through chemotherapy and I just broke down”

Jo Moseley, 56, is a Mum of two sons, aged 24 & 20. She describes herself as a beach cleaner, joy encourager & midlife adventurer.

In August 2019, Jo became the first woman to SUP (stand up paddle-board) coast to coast 162 miles along the Leeds Liverpool Canal, picking up litter, fundraising for surf therapy charity The Wave Project and 2 Minute Beach Clean Foundation and raising awareness of the problems of single use plastic. 

She loves writing, speaking about adventure  + wellbeing and making tiny films about the joy of the outdoors for our mental health after losing her Mum + a difficult menopause. Her short films Finding Joy and Found At Sea have both won awards. She has been featured in the national press, magazines, on the TV and radio. Jo also speaks at adventure festivals and midlife wellbeing events. 

Alongside her lovely day job, Jo teaches hydro jog and plans to train as a paddle-board instructor to share the joy of SUP (stand up paddle-boarding) with other women. An inspiration in so many ways!

“I can’t change the world, without changing  the little bit around me”
