Born on the beautiful island of Grenada (Isle of Spice), Jody migrated to the USA in 2001, along with her family. Determined to pursue her education and achieve her goals, she was educated in the New York City Public School System as well as the Seventh-day Adventist Private Schools System which afforded her the unique opportunity of meeting a diversity of people from many different backgrounds and cultures.
In high school, Jody was on the track team. A very good and highly competitive athlete, she mastered the 100m and 200m dash and was apart of the varsity girl’s 4x100m and 4x200m team indoor and outdoor seasons. Always on the honor roll and dean’s list, Jody also displayed leadership skills in academics.
After visiting an aunt in North Carolina, Jody was inspired by her passion for comforting patients and providing them with reassurance and encouragement. She became her mentor and role model, and Jody decided to become a nurse. She is currently finishing a degree in Applied Science in Nursing; her plans are to pursue this career all the way to graduate school. Her ultimate goal is to become a Geriatric Registered Nurse. She wishes nothing more than to offer comfort and treatment to patients during what may be the most trying time in their life.
