While living her white picket-fence life, raising a young family and directing a human services charity, Jodi’s life changed when she was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Fifteen surgeries and dozens of complications over 12 years have given her a new, intimate understanding of both the receiving and giving sides of life.

She earned a master’s degree in Organizational Communication, a bachelor’s degree in Public Relations, is a Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE), and an award-winning author.
Jodi has lived on both U.S. coasts, studied in the Middle East, and travelled extensively, but believes any community is home when you love the people around you. She met her husband, Tolan, while living in Israel, and they settled in Utah, where they are raising four children.
