Entrepreneur and Innovator Using Technology to Solve Community Problems
Jodi is a serial entrepreneur who learned two things about herself early in her career:
- She does not handle “because we’ve always done it that way” as a good answer to the question “why”.
- She does not like routine.
She’s leveraged those two facts into starting several businesses – one in the defense industry and one in tech (plus a few consulting companies here and there) – with a goal of doing things differently. And, hopefully, smartly. She believes that technology has the ability to change the world for the better, and loves hearing how other people are doing that and helping them to do it.
Jodi thinks there is nothing more boring than being lectured to, and does her best to make all of her presentations into a dynamic conversation. Small groups or large, interaction is key to engagement. Engagement is key to learning.
