As a regular religion columnist for The Seattle Times, a secular newspaper with an average readership of 1.8 million people in the Pacific Northwest and beyond, Jodi is excited about having a voice for faith in Jesus to one of the most unchurched regions of the US.
Having served alongside her husband, Don, in ministry for many years, Jodi is now the Chairperson for the national Network for Women in Ministry. As a certified personal coach and a speaker for many groups across America, Jodi loves talking to people at heart-level about things that matter most. Her speaking engagements at retreats, conferences, and training events allow her to speak into the lives of thousands on a yearly basis. She also serves as an adjunct professor at Northwest University in Kirkland, Washington.
Jodi lives with her husband, Don, in the rainy Pacific Northwest where a Starbucks latte is always a good idea.
