Jodi’s commitment to please her clients with an incredible attention to detail and inside knowledge not only from her personal passion of travel but also from her years of experience professionally as her career brought her to Sandals Resorts as a Business Development Manager. Her expanse knowledge gained from her exposure in the travel industry allowed Jodi to make incredible connections with industry professionals, tourist boards, tour operators and key resort personnel. Jodi utilizes this knowledge and insight as your agent to provide you with the best inclusive experience for your destination wedding, honeymoon, getaway or family vacation.

Jodi’s career provided her with firsthand knowledge of not only Sandals resorts but all resorts as she was required to stay on top of all other competitive properties. While Jodi deeply loved her position with Sandals she decided that being a Road Warrior and spending most of her time in the Islands of the Caribbean was not conducive as she began to build her family. It was only natural that Jodi continued to pursue her deep passion of travel coupled with creating amazing client experiences in becoming a part of the Island Getaways Team and representing the Twin Cities.
