Jodi is the owner of Sweetwater Cuisine, one of Virginia Beach’s premier catering companies and Sunday brunch destinations, located in the heart of Virginia Beach. She holds a bachelor’s degree from Old Dominion University in Mathematics and spent nine years in the secondary mathematics classroom in Norfolk and Virginia Beach. Giving back to the community is one of Jodi’s core values. Her love of children led her to help found the Full Circle Project, a program that teaches underprivileged youth culinary and life skills – preparing them for a brighter future. But it was the tragic loss of her first husband to colon cancer when he was just 32 years old that inspired her the most. His name was Daniel. In 2014 Daniel’s Grace was founded in his memory to do what he could not – help others. Daniel’s Grace is committed to helping cancer families survive and thrive. Jodi’s mission is to grow Daniel’s Grace into a national non-profit so that cancer families all over the United States can have the support they need to survive their battle and thrive beyond it. Join her on the journey!
