Born and raised in Shadyside, Ohio Jodi is accustomed to the medical needs of a small community and knew early on what her profession would entail. ” I have always wanted to help people and serve in areas in the Ohio Valley where there was a great demand for medical care. I chose to become a Physician Assistant shortly after witnessing our family physician assistant take excellent care of my little brother when he was ill. After learning about what the PA profession entailed, I realized it was a perfect fit for me.” states Jodi.
Jodi will be seeing patients at both Barnesville Family Health Center, located at 101 East Main Street Barnesville, Ohio and Freeport Family Health Center, located at 110 West Main Street Freeport, Ohio.
