about jody

I'm fascinated with people's stories, their ambitions, and helping them achieve their goals.


"Jody has taught me how to expand and build a team that compliments my company's goals by helping me reflect on my foundational purpose."  

Morgan - Professional Endurance Athlete Coach & Business Owner

I have three decades of leadership and coaching experience in the Navy. Outside of the military I’ve coached executives, small business owners, and people transitioning from one stage of life to another.  


Graduating from the Raleigh Coaching Academy was my first step in transitioning into professional coaching. I'm an International Coaching Federation, Professional Certified Coach (PCC), a Certified Authentic Leadership Coach and Resilience Building Leader Adjunct Instructor. I'm also certified in EQ-i 2.0, the Tilt 365 and Forte suites of assessments. I'm an active member of the International Coaching Federation (ICF) Raleigh, NC Chapter and hold a Master of Science in Emergency and Disaster Management (MSEDM). Throughout my Navy career I've been to every leadership course the military has to offer and coached countless people, organizations and teams to success. 


I’ve served in combat with small, highly elite, Reconnaissance and Special Operations teams, and I’ve spent the last decade advising two-star & three-star General Officers with organizations of more than 45k service members and civilians.


My experience advising leaders spans between Heads of State and Distinguished Members of Foreign Governments, to having tea with village elders deep in the middle of enemy held territory.


Life has taken me all over the world and provided more experiences than I can remember; I'm comfortable in any situation imaginable, but what I do best is listen.


The most important attribute in a coach is the ability to listen and ask powerful questions. I will listen and ask questions that will help you accomplish your goals
