She is passionate about ensuring all individuals are treated with compassion and given the opportunity to become the best versions of themselves.

Jodi attended the University of New Hampshire with the intention of going into sports broadcasting, but during her sophomore year she got a job with Upward Bound that changed her life and propelled her in a different direction. Working with first-generation college-bound youth, Jodi recognized the strong impact substance abuse and un/under-treated mental health issues in the youth and their family members had on the students’ educational outcomes and dedicated herself to helping individuals and families overcome the barriers to leading their best lives. She went on to earn her bachelor’s degree in psychology and master’s degree in social work from UNH.
