About Jody

I started my career of caregiving In 1983 where I provided in home care for an elderly lady for 18 months. In 1984 I worked for Minnesota DHS with developmentally disabled persons. In 1989 I began working for the Minnesota DOC until I retired in 2020. I love to help people achieve their goals and I really enjoy seeing people happy. I am currently teaching myself some wood working, furniture refinishing and some art.

I remembered growing up wanting to be a surgeon. I didn't end up being a surgeon but I knew I have a huge heart to care for people. I'm passionate with what I do. I'm funny and enjoy good conversations. I'm such a good listener and also love advocating for people. I'm very reliable and honest. I'm patient and can handle just about anything. It's a rewarding field. Going home and feel appreciated and that you did something good for someone.
