Jodi‘s professional bio / interests
I’m an ex-digital marketing strategist turned socio-technical systems consultant who is passionate about contributing to safe, responsible, and trustworthy AI, algorithmic, and autonomous systems innovation—enabled in a market co-shaped with diverse inputs and multistakeholder representation. I'm one of the first Independent Auditors of AI Systems certified by ForHumanity for the EU & UK GDPR and UK Children's Code—called ForHumanity Certified Auditors (FHCAs). Let me know if you'd like to learn more. I love sharing how FHCAs fit into the overall market governance structure—simultaneously supporting public interest and industry—providing key and critical components of a more robust infrastructure of trust. I also love talking about the digital economy and explaining the characteristics and dynamics of her various markets—Who are the creators of value? Who are the extractors of value? Who are the parasites? The invisible hand and self-interest—novelty and Skinner. CV →

A career highlight
Of all the highlights, I'd say the most meaningful and impactful are the quiet and private gifts of gratitude I've received throughout the years when my work made someone else feel human—seen, heard, included, or loved. Collectively, these gifts have become my compass and gauge in mi vida loca.
