Jody is a life-long Unitarian and Racine resident who grew up in this church with parents who were active in the Religious Education program and with maintenance and upkeep of the church building. She married her husband Bryon at Olympia Brown in 1990, and their son was raised here as well. She is sure that UU influence is a major reason that her family cares so strongly about social justice issues. Her mother also attends this church and has for 50+ years. Jody has served on served committees over the years. This is the second time she has served on the OBUUC Board of Trustees.
