Jody moved to Arkansas from Mississippi with her husband in 2009. They have one fur baby and almost a dozen cherished nieces and nephews! They love living in the natural state and taking advantage of the amazing outdoor activities, shopping local farmers markets, and football. Jody was led to Birth by Design after several months of prayer that she would find a valuable way to share her knowledge of gestational and pediatric nutrition. She joined the team at a time of great change in 2014 and endeavors to share the power of food with prenatal care providers and families for many generations to come!
