Jodi enjoys her job at the Director of Development at The Herbert H. and Grace A. Dow College of Health Professions. She loves interacting with students, faculty, friends, and alumni of CMU. Development for the college and in the focus of health professions is something Jodi cares greatly about.

After graduating from CMU with a degree in Integrative Public Relations and Communications, Jodi got her professional start at the Mt. Pleasant Area Chamber of Commerce. There she planned programs, events, and assisted with membership recruitment. From there she went on to Central Michigan Community Hospital where she had to role of Foundation Coordinator. She was in charge of annual giving, employee giving, special events, and took part in the New Life ~ New Hope Capital Campaign, which exceeded its goal and raised 7.4 million dollars. When she had the opportunity to come back to CMU as a Director of Development she was excited to return to campus.  She recently completed her Masters of Science in Administration, also from CMU.

Jodi's volunteer work is also important to her. She is an active volunteer for the Mt. Pleasant Area Chamber of Commerce, where she was awarded Ambassador of the Year for 2009. She also serves on the board and Executive Board for Mid-Michigan Industries (MMI) and the Mt. Pleasant Area Discovery Museum.
