Noteworthy / Additional Information
She cannot be held responsible for her resting bitch face or her eye rolling. Or her judgy brow quirking. Sorry not sorry.
She brings people back to life with an intentional touch. Someone or something nearby dies, as a result. If she kills someone, deliberately, something dead nearby will rise.
Surgery? She's pretty much dedicated her entire youth to honing her skills as a surgeon and earning her education. She has very few practical skills outside of her medical skill set. She is, however, a natural leader. She can take orders like a champ - there's no chip on her moisturized shoulder.
Speed reading, spending entire days out at a salon-and-spa (wax, mani-pedi, massage, hair...), elliptical jockeying, performing voodoo on the down-low, studying various forms of mysticism, masquerading as non-predatory, becoming close with X-Men and others who have ties to mysticism.

Her father passed away when she was in junior high, and her family doubled down in closeness. She and her brother are extra connected with their meddling Italian mother to this day.
Teen & College Years
She fell in love with a professor of hers in grad school, met his wife at a school function and felt awful but still continued her affair with him after he insured her that he and his wife were no longer in love. His wife came into his office on a surprise visit and caught them mid-act. When his wife went for Jo, her mutation kicked in for the first time, and the woman died in their brief scuffle. Furious with herself and confused about what had happened, she seized her professor and begged him to call 911. He told her to leave and that he would 'take care of it' for them. Confused further still, Jo argued, and when he took her arm to forcibly remove her from the office, he fell to his knees and his wife began to writhe on the floor. She fled. The aftermath almost ruined her chances at starting her career, but the unclear details of the situation left the authorities with little evidence and the death of her professor was ruled a heart attack. His wife never made contact with Jo.
Despite the rocky ending to her education, she graduated and became a successful surgeon after her residency was through. On occasion, she would secretly use her mutation to "fix" a life and death arrangement between patients - usually a person in a vegetative state with a young car crash victim, for example. This may or may not have led to her termination and hiring by Xavier. It was probably for the best.
