Jodi Jansen '14 is a graduate of the University of Alabama with a BS in Mechanical Engineering. While in college, Jodi worked closely with the Tuscaloosa community both on and off campus through several educational outreach and mentoring programs. Research into almost every opportunity for a mechanical engineer post graduation had Jodi set on a career in construction logistics; however, a well-timed email from a Merion sister redirected her path into civil service with the Department of Defense. Jodi now serves as an engineer with the Missile Defense Agency that is tasked to defend the United States, its deployed forces, allies, and friends from missile attacks in all phases of flight.
Merion Mercy was thrilled to catch up with Jodi at a recent Lunch & Learn sponsored by MMA's Alumnae Board Career and Mentoring Committee. Jodi graciously shared her professional experiences with MMA students.
