The first time Jodi visited Santa Monica, she was seven years old. It was a family trip from her home in New York. As they were having an adventure on the Santa Monica Pier, Jodi told her parents she was coming back. She did…it was the week after the Northridge Earthquake. Not an auspicious but the start of a great adventure.
After sampling various areas along the Los Angeles coast, Jodi bought her home in Ocean Park 17 years ago. The experience shaped her in many ways. It was her first major investment, and being part of the portfolio-building Southern California market inspired her to pursue a career in real estate, helping others build their wealth. On a personal level, she was comfortable within the community, appreciating the easy, self-motivating lifestyle.
Jodi believes that Ocean Park is one of the best neighborhoods in the country. It’s proximity to beach, business and shopping make it perfectly situated for her busy lifestyle.
As Communications Chair for the Ocean Park Association, she is able to use the marketing skills she first learned growing up in a “Mad Men”-like household. Realizing she had a flare for communications, Jodi attended the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism at Arizona State University, graduating with honors.
She is proud to serve her neighborhood on the Ocean Park Association and be a voice for her community.
