What Jody’s nominator said about her

I have known Jody personally and professionally. She has worked in various roles at Duke.  When she came to CFM, she spent hours getting files updated, program packets correct, and student schedules and grades input into various systems. Without her support in the FM Residency there would be  a large hole.  She does not back down to a challenge. Jody is an amazing person and deserves to be recognized.
