Jodie is a driven educator, scientist and musician, who deeply values the community and personal connections that can be made through music. As a member of the NSCE (2007-2014), she formed lifelong friendships and a strong musical foundation which she hopes to pass onto her students. Since leaving the Ensemble, Jodie has worked as both an environmental scientist and outdoor educator. She holds a Bachelor's degree in Environmental Science from the University of British Columbia, where she was an active volunteer with Sprouts, an organization that supports sustainable food. Jodie enjoys a strong cup of tea, hiking by moonlight and crooked fiddle tunes.
