About Jo

Jo Wadham is a freelance journalist based in the south east of England. Previously based in the United Arab Emirates, she was a regular feature writer for The National, the leading English language newspaper in the UAE.

Jo specialises in parenting and lifestyle features, but has also written on other subjects such as books and entertainment, the environment and personal finance.

After attending Oxford University, Jo practised as a corporate lawyer in London and Paris with an international law firm and a FTSE 100 company for nine years. Her legal background endowed her with many of the skills that make her such a reliable and professional writer today. The importance of deadlines, the need for rigorous research and a keen eye for grammatical accuracy are second nature to Jo.

In 2003, Jo, her husband and baby daughter left the UK to live in Abu Dhabi. They returned in the summer of 2011 to the UK, older, tanned and with two more children.
