I met Jodi Tucker in 2013 and was inspired by her knowledge, conviction and caring heart. I have been able to consult with Jodi on a couple of projects and she was able to provide me with some incredible insight both in working with clients and administration professionals. I have found working with Jodi to both a positive and inspiring experience; I have enjoyed working with Jodi because of her quest for knowledge, multi-dimensional view of the task at hand and her strong and compassionate leadership skills.
Jodi has been a fantastic resource for a high conflict co-parenting situation. She has offered a calm, practical perspective and helped me find equilibrium when emotions run high. Jodi always focuses on results and pragmatic, realistic options. It has been a pleasure and a relief to work with her. Highly recommended!
I encountered Jodi by chance in 2007/2008 while she was looking for some advice on business insurance and I was working as an Account Executive for Aon Insurance in Langley. I got to know Jodi better as time went on and she tracked me down as I was making my way into being an insurance producer or business development manager being the route that my career was taking me.
Jodi fascinated me with her love for children and her passion to see them taken care of with the proper direction & guidance and she constantly kept pushing boundaries to make that happen. I have enjoyed working with her and providing her advice in the insurance area, as she kept growing as a business person with a passion to see children’s lives change for the better. She was at the time providing support to children with autism and also supporting and directing parents & caregivers to be able to handle these situations better. She passed on a book to me called “Abigail” which totally inspired me as I read it to my little grandson Kaden. It is a simple book encouraging kids to be who they are and feeling good about it even if they are different. In fact, my little dog has since been named after this book.
Though these years, I have seen Jodi never settle for what is or was available. She was always looking for something more she can do in the same lines of thinking – working on educating people that are the support system to kids with any sort of issues that did not make it easy for them to fit into the ‘norm’. She keeps pushing the bar for better systems. I have referred Jodi to colleagues and friends who seemed to have struggles with children who needed the extra support. They always seem impressed with the work she does.
I see Jodi take on a new path now, which gives her more autonomy in the area she is passionate about and giving her the opportunity for advocacy in these areas – again with providing the right support and guidance to adults who are in charge of the young minds of children who may need the extra support/care.
I wish Jodi all the best with her adventures in life. Her exuberance and tenacity for change gives her the energy to keep pushing for change in others.
Jodi is an amazing speaker. It seems like she has an endless amount of information to talk about. I've never heard her run out of things to say. She is extremely knowledgable. The first time we had her speak, we made the mistake of only booking her for 20 minutes. Everyone was so engaged and asking her questions that we increased her time to 90 mins. Even then we reluctantly let her finish and knew we had to have her return to the next event we have. We'll definitely need to schedule her more time though. My favourite part about her is how passionate she is; you can feel it in her words and see it on her face. You know she really means what she says and believes in her topic. This woman was born to be a speaker.
