Jodi graduated from The University of Arizona with an MFA in Writing, which she put to good use as a content creator for major household names such as Nat Geo Wild, ABC News, iVillage/NBC Health, Pregnancy & Newborn Magazine, and Writer’s Digest. Her writing gigs took her all over the world, including studying whale sharks in the Gulf of Mexico for an article published on The National Geographic Channel’s Webby Award-nominated website, Great Migrations.
These days, Jodi sticks a little closer to home, and she’s shaped a diverse skillset over a nearly twenty-year career. Previous roles include serving as Digital and Social Media Marketing Strategist for a leading global consumer baby goods brand and Development Director for nonprofit organizations. Jodi’s love for identifying solutions for audience and organizational needs, coupled with her creative storytelling and NPO expertise, led her to Interactive Strategies, where she supports our teams with end-to-end touchpoint digital and content strategy. Some of Jodi’s past and present clients include the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA), International Association of Dental Research (IADR), Davis Construction, The Chartis Group, Southland Industries, The Sentencing Project, and Action Against Hunger.
When she’s not behind a computer, Jodi keeps busy chasing her two energetic kids and dog, kayaking, and hiking. She’s a trained voiceover artist, most recently lending her voice for the Achilles International Gala hosted by Jon Stewart and participating in workshops with actress Jane Lynch. Oh, and did we mention that Jodi’s also an award-winning author with HarperCollins Children’s Books? You can find her novels on a shelf near you, under the name Jodi Kendall.
