Jodi grew up on Colorado’s Front Range and attended Colorado State University, earning a B.A. in English and an M.A. in communication development. She spent 16 years working as a technical communicator with computer company Hewlett-Packard, then made a career shift to journalism. Shortly after completing an internship with High Country News, in 2004, she was hired as the organization’s news editor; later she served as managing editor for five years. In 2017, she transitioned to contributing editor, a part-time position. She also works as the executive assistant for The Nature Connection, a Hotchkiss-based nonprofit dedicated to getting local youth into the outdoors for learning and fun. She's excited to help KVNF create expanded news coverage to better serve the communities we reach.
