Hello everyone, I am Jodi Oldes. I had VSG in June 2012 with a starting weight around 292 lbs. During my 6-month pre-op process, I made many you tube and Facebook friends that included many with the WLFSA. I attended my first WLSFA Meet and Greet in 2013 where I met many of the friends I had made via the internet and made even more while at the conference! This group not only allowed me the platform to meet and make friends but get vital information about WLS resources and education that has helped me in my journey. I also found like-minded selfless people with a passion to help others! I have always had a servants’ heart and find myself yearning to do all that I can to help others get this life saving, life changing surgery. Seeing my own transformation and so many others in the community, I want to do all I can to help. I have worked with non profits and helped raise funds for other organizations and feel I can contribute to this great cause.
I have an Associates’ Degree in Business from Sierra College in Rocklin, CA and a Paralegal Certificate from American River College in Sacramento, CA. My legal background is in Family Law and Estate Planning. I currently work as an Executive Assistant for the VP of Risk Management with Adventist Health in Roseville, CA and previously for the VP of Engineering with K-LOVE and Air1 Radio in Rocklin, CA.
