Jodie has a special skill in communicating with teenagers and she puts these skills to great effect in a course that challenges the students to think through a range of important issues; including hope, resilience, friendship and emotional wellbeing. Jodie covers these difficult topics in a way that is fun, meaningful and relevant. Our students were thoroughly engaged throughout Jodie’s presentations and we received excellent feedback about Jodie and the material she presented. I have no hesitation in recommending Jodie as a wonderful communicator with a great message of hope and meaning for young people.

Jodie has a great heart to see young people realise their potential and understand their unique value. More than that she has a wonderful ability to communicate so clearly and effectively to an audience that are often quite difficult to engage.

Jenny Exton, Head of Secondary Northern Beaches Christian School, NSW
I really enjoyed the Program because I got to know more about some of the girls in my grade I never really spoke to and made friends. Jodie was amazing and always had fun activities for us to do and get to know each other more. She was really open about everything and we felt comfortable enough to ask any questions we had. She helped me be more comfortable with who I am.

Jodie is extremely passionate about all she puts her hand to. I have heard her speak a number of times. She speaks with a “Kind Authority”, is well prepared and presents well.
