Jody is a full stack Drupal expert. She does technical architecture, strategy, development, consulting, and developer training. She has worked on hundreds of Drupal projects since she began as a freelancer in 2006 and co-founded Zivtech in 2008.
Jody grew up in the Philadelphia area and graduated from Harvey Mudd College in California in 2000. She worked as a high school math teacher for a year, as both math and teaching are strengths of hers. She also worked in a lab coat for a number of years as an analytical chemist in the pharmaceutical industry where she ensured quality throughout new drug synthesis projects and got in trouble for being on the internet too much.
What’s your favorite thing about working at Zivtech?
Seeing employees thrive and grow in their careers and lives.
The best professional advice I can give is:
Set and enforce your boundaries to keep work out of your personal time. Put yourself and your family first.
As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A children's rights lawyer. Or maybe a zoo worker.
If you didn't work here, what would you be doing?
If I were rich and felt no responsibility to anything, I would want one of those rich person "farms" with a lot of animals. Horses and miniature horses would be involved. And I would play lots of music.
