Meet Jody Stoddard, Executive Director at The Gardens

As a native of the Mississippi Gulf Coast, Jody realized at a young age that she wanted to spend her life caring for others. Jody obtained a Bachelor’s in Therapeutic Recreation from the University of Southern Mississippi, and a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing from William Carey College. Since 2002, she has worked in a few hospitals out of the area, but found her way back home along the Gulf Coast in various healthcare positions until settling here at The Gardens. When Jody is away from The Gardens family, she is occupied by her two children and husband, Clay. She enjoys the beautiful Gulf of Mexico through sailing, fishing or sitting on the beach at Horne Island.
