Jody started at Andover Mind as a Dementia Advisor almost 10 years ago. Since then, she has worked as a Team Leader and Older Persons Service Manager before overseeing the launch of the Hampshire-wide Carer Support and Dementia Advice Service in 2019. Jody regards the successful implementation of this service to be one of the highlights of her career to date.
Jody is looking forward to stepping up from her previous role as Director of Advice and Information Services and, as CEO, leading the charity as we begin to bounce back from difficult times during the pandemic. Jody said: "Mental health services like ours are needed more than ever before and, with the support of our dedicated workforce, my aim is to drive innovation and shape services to meet the changing needs of our communities."
Outside of work, Jody enjoys meeting up with family and friends, traveling (when we are allowed) and staying active. Her previous achievements include climbing the three peaks.
