Jodie successfully built and ran her own business after school and has NVQ level 3 hairdressing. She moved her career to childcare and worked,and ran a business for 12 years. She has NVQ diploma level 3 in childcare, designated safeguarding lead and other related qualifications.
In 2020 Jodie's youngest was faced with stage 4 liver cancer. She battled her way through the treatment and Jodie and her family all pulled together to get her through it, whilst not being allowed visitors. She then needed a multi organ transplant and has recovered well. Jodie's daughter designed and made a logo to go on clothing and accessories, which the family created. All the profits go to charities and children in hospital.
It was during this time that Jodie found out about the charity SPLIT, and how they support families. Jodie is now thrilled to be helping SPLIT raise awareness so we can keep supporting families and putting funding into research for Liver pancreatic and Intestinal transplants.
