Jodi’s happy to be back home in the Milwaukee area. She had no idea what she was in for when she left beer, brats and the Packers behind to work at KFI-AM 640 in Los Angeles. She flew to LA during a blizzard so she figured it would at least be a weather improvement! During her time in LA Jodi covered everything from wildfires and mudslides to murder trials and celebrity court hearings.
Jodi grew up in Germantown and she’s a “cheesehead” at heart. She loves anything to do with the Packers and football. She also enjoys trying new local restaurants, shopping at fun boutiques, and finding new music groups to download. She also tries to stay active with a mix of running, hiking, yoga and weight-lifting. Jodi and her husband live in Metro Milwaukee and welcomed a son in January 2012.

Jodi’s family says she stunted her younger brother’s speech by talking for him when they were little. Guess she picked the right career path.
