Jo Morris, Managing Director

“Prior to Dad’s diagnosis, I knew very little about asbestos and had never heard of mesothelioma. Sadly, I believe this is not uncommon and without more community awareness, people will continue to suffer the loss and devastation that my family have experienced firsthand through something that is preventable.”

Co-founder and Director, Joanne (Jo) Morris is the driving force behind Reflections. Jo’s passion for the cause was shared with her father, Barry Knowles, who passed away from mesothelioma in December 2016. Jo is proud to carry on his legacy.

With a background in public relations, sales and marketing, Jo is confident to take on whatever challenge comes her way and to complete it with pride and integrity. Jo’s creativity is demonstrated in her role as Design Consultant in the Perth-based building design company she has operated with her husband since 2003.

Lizz Clarke, Support Coordinator

“I hope to offer the Reflections’ community a proactive, practical, evidence-based approach to support the path ahead.”

Lizz has joined the Reflections team as Support Network Coordinator to assist individuals and families affected by asbestos-related disease.

She brings more than 20 years of acute and community nursing experience in the Emergency and Public Health sectors from across England, New Zealand and Australia. She has a Masters Degree (Medical Science) and graduate diplomas in Adult Nursing, Migrant Health and Sexology.

Lizz was primary carer for her husband, Colin, diagnosed with Mesothelioma in 2016. She experienced first-hand the frustrations and challenges of living with a progressive, incurable disease and the limitations of constantly adjusting to a “new normal.” The intersection of professional and lived experience gives Lizz a unique in-depth understanding of the needs of individuals, family and friends.
