Jodie has lived in Smethwick and the surrounding areas all of her life.

She used to be the chair at Warley Woods Scout Group and SureStart and used to work at Uplands Manor Primary School as an LSA, where she worked for nearly 20 years.

She has 3 children who all went to local schools.

She is looking forward to helping to develop the centre and assist the centre in helping the local community thrive.
