ASSOCIATE DEAN AND DIRECTOR, HEALTH PROFESSIONS ADVISING
Jodi began her career in academic premedical advising in the mid-1980s at the University of Pennsylvania. Since she assumed leadership of Bryn Mawr’s Postbaccalaureate Premedical Program and the Health Professions Advising Office in 1993, Jodi has had a major influence on its growth and national prominence as one of the country’s oldest and most well respected postbac premedical programs.
As a national leader in the field, Jodi is well known and well respected by medical school admission deans and premedical advisers across the country. She served as president of the Northeast Association of Advisors for the Health Professions (NEAAHP) in 2008-09 and as a member of the executive board of the National Association of Advisors for the Health Professions (NAAHP). In addition, she is the national coordinator of the Directors of Postbaccalaureate Premedical Programs. Over the years, Jodi has also led numerous task forces and special-interest groups comprising medical school admissions deans, student affairs deans, and premedical advisers.
Perhaps most important to the students in Bryn Mawr’s Postbaccalaureate Premedical Program is Jodi’s personal commitment to advising and supporting students every step of the way—from before their arrival on campus through the medical school admissions process, enrollment, and beyond—in fact, many postbac alumni stay in touch with Jodi, who has remained one of their most important mentors.
