About the speaker
Jodie was born in Shrewsbury. She grew up in Shropshire and Herefordshire. Jodie has always loved animals and the environment. It was this love of the environment that saw Jodie going to Hull University to study Biology and it was her love of animals that changed her life forever; she met the man of her dreams and fell madly in love. Despite vowing never to live in a new house, or in Wales, her dream man, now her husband, persuaded her to move to Wales and buy a new house in Rogiet, near Chepstow. Jodie’s love of the environment and animals has never faded and Jodie currently volunteers with the Wildlife Warriors at Magor Marsh every Wednesday evening for Gwent Wildlife Trust.
Jodie has lived in Wales for the past 15 years and has slowly filled her home with as many animals as her husband will allow. She currently has pet ducks, chickens and cats. It is one particular animal that forms the subject of her presentation this evening.
