About Jodie

I'm a happy-hearted, book-loving, pop culture junkie who loves Jesus, my family, and Diet Coke. I went on my first date with my husband because he drove a motorcycle. I have two daughters I gave birth to, and a few that I love like I did.

I wrestle with words to force them to explain what's in my heart. I have the diet of an 11-year-old. (I'm not exaggerating! I don't like veggies, and PB&J is all I need to survive.) I'm a fierce hugger and a girl who likes to laugh. I live my life honestly and fight for others to do the same as I believe that is where God is most easily able to meet us.

I spent the first 17 years of my career working for a non-profit outreach ministry called Young Life, where I was able to coach and teach a wide variety of people and ages. During those years, I learned that deep and meaningful relationships are intentionally created. I believe that it is through these relationships that we discover our true selves. These relationships of value require honest conversations about real life with no judgements. It also requires a whole lot of fun and shared experiences.

In 2016, I founded Live Idlewild to help adults discover a life lived to the fullest through coaching, speaking, and retreats.

I’m also a certified Yoga Instructor and add that into the mix when it’s appropriate. Namaste.

Now I smush my 20 years of experience, my gifts, and skills together to curate personalized space and events for people to discover the life they long for and the relationships they need to support them.

Because silly characters make everything more fun :)
