Jodi helps open the dialogue for startups, teams, couples, and families by using a method called Council, which is designed to foster deeper understanding through the sharing of ideas, thoughts, and insights.
Jodi first experienced Council when her daughters were attending Open Charter, a public elementary school in Los Angeles. Jodi was moved by the way in which the Council practice enabled her to understand and appreciate both others and herself in a new way. Inspired, she began learning to facilitate Councils through workshops at The Ojai Foundation, becoming a Certified Council Trainer.
Jodi’s education includes an A.B. in Political Science (magna cum laude) from Brown University and a law degree with distinction from Stanford University. In addition to being a lawyer, Council trainer and facilitator, she is a former black belt in karate and Graduado in capoeira. A California-native, Jodi enjoys long walks on the beach (yep, we said it), speed walking in the hills, and practices and teaches yoga.
