Jodi Rose, Executive Director

Jodi@InterfaithChesapeake.org

Jodi graduated from the University of Illinois with a degree in Biochemistry and worked in the environmental consulting field for 15 years managing soil and groundwater remediation projects and later running her own consulting firm. As a volunteer in her Catholic parish in Indiana, she spearheaded several environmental and social justice programs that engaged fellow parishioners to live out their faith in action. It was during this time that Jodi felt a strong calling to work at the intersection of faith and environment. Shortly after relocating to Rockville, she became the ED of IPC and grew the organization's influence on watershed restoration action in Maryland. She is married and has “almost grown” boys. She enjoys spending free time exploring Maryland’s state parks, tending to her rain garden at home, and cooking.
