Ultimately, Jodi’s fascination in the areas of organizational development, individual growth, facilitation and Human Resources Management drew her back to the business realm.
Jodi’s own learning journey has allowed her to obtain her CPHR designation via HRMA, to complete two certificates (Instructional Design and Advanced Facilitation) at the Justice Institute as well as her anticipated completion in Mediation in 2017.
