Jodi in car with 3 daughters


I have 3 daughters, 3 dogs, 2 hairless guinea pigs, 2 conures and about 15 chickens. I am a proud member of the LBTQ+ community and am engaged to an amazing woman. I also volunteer as a bereavement photographer for Jalen's Gift Foundation. I love riding one of my Harleys when the weather is decent, and camping in the middle of the woods in one of our beautiful national parks.
