About Jodi
Foster Care Assessor

My husband and I moved to Wooster right after we graduated college in 2014. I began my career in child welfare at CCHO as a treatment specialist. I spent the last couple years working as a caseworker at Wayne County CSB and case manager at the Wayne County Children’s Advocacy Center. Our young daughter is so much fun! I enjoy gardening, jogging, coffee and DIY projects. My husband and I bought a “fixer upper” a couple years ago and have been renovating it.

Foster care and adoption are my greatest passions. Being a foster mom myself, I have seen the beauty and restoration that can happen within foster care and adoption. It is such a privilege to walk alongside foster families as they play a huge role in helping children heal and grow into who God created them to be. It is a unique privilege to be able to care for someone else’s child and it is my hope that I can provide support, education and resources to foster families who are doing this hard and rewarding work.
