She attended Box Elder schools, graduating from Box Elder High School in 1984.

She began working for the Rocky Boy Police Department as a dispatcher, and was training to be a police officer when her partner was in an accident. This caused Jodi to rethink her career choice. She worked as a cook for the next several years in a few different places, including Country Kitchen.

She attended Stone Child College, receiving her associate degree, and went on to attend the University of Great Falls, where she was only three credits shy of receiving her bachelor's degree in criminal justice.

Jodi returned home to be with her family, and worked at Rocky Boy Headstart, Chippewa Cree Tribal Courts and Chippewa Cree Social Services. She retired July 13, 2018.
