Meet Jo. boobydoo Ambassador. British Army Officer, GB Bobsleigh Athlete.

I'm Jo and you can find me on Instagram, @JustJo_Ellett. Whilst growing up I was a member of the Army Cadet Force from the age of 12, taking part in lots of physical activities and sports. I was set on a career in the British Army and this began aged 16 when I attended Welbeck Defence Sixth Form College.

Following my A levels, I went to study Design Engineering at Aston University, Birmingham. Whilst at university I studied the fit and form of body armour for female and small stature personnel, which started off my passion for having correctly fitted bras.

I attended the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst in 2013 and completed 44-weeks training, commissioning into the Corps of Royal Engineers in 2014. I have completed several roles in the Army to date, including commanding a troop of soldiers, project manager for a construction site in Kenya, planning and delivering training, community engagement/media and engineering advisor in England, Germany and South Korea.

Sport and adventure training has always been a large part of my career, including rock climbing, white water rafting, hill walking, off-shore sailing, mountain biking, paddle boarding, athletics, football, rugby, boxing and bobsleigh. All of these activities alongside the military training, physical training and exercises require a practical and comfortable sports bra which makes you feel protected and secure, leaving you one less thing to worry about. I have religiously worn the Enell Sports Bra throughout my career.
