My name is Jody Wissing. I like to live my life with adventure, passion and fun. Most of my friends would describe me as a supporter of anything artistic, environmental or humanitarian. I like making a positive difference in everything I do. If I had a personal mission statement, it would be to help make the world a better place through art and humanitarianism. Small changes really do add up to make a big impact. Our actions are our voice for what we believe in and I like to challenge myself to be a positive influence in this world.
I am a communications director with 20+ years of experience in branding, marketing, design and presentation. Strategic thinking combined with creative design skill gives me a unique ability to communicate complex information with simplicity and clarity. Highly creative, adapts quickly, works well under pressure, eye for detail, big picture thinker and loves new challenges.
