Jodi has been highly involved with MJCCA Day Camps since she began working at the MJCCA in 2017. For the past two years, Jodi served as the Director of Club J, the MJCCA’s after-school program, where she made a significant impact, greatly expanding the program and introducing new activities such as yoga, community service projects, Spanish learning, and more. A St. Petersburg native and University of Florida graduate, Jodi has called Atlanta her home since 2005, and the MJCCA has been an integral part of her life since her children, Dylan and Samantha, were born. As students of The Weinstein School, campers at MJCCA Day Camps and Camp Barney Medintz, and participants in Youth Sports programs, Jodi’s children have grown, learned, and made lifelong friends at the MJCCA. Jodi is beyond excited to help make amazing summers possible for your children.
