Episode 22: Chosen, living to serve others with Jodi O’Donnell Ames

Show Notes

At an early age, Jodi became familiar with grief after losing her grade-school crush to an unexpected accident. When she later lost her husband to ALS, she knew she had to help others who had and were living through a similar experience. She founded an amazing non-profit called Hope Loves Company, and is now looking to pivot into a coaching and speaking career.
