After being a working actress in Los Angeles for over 14 years, Jodi was taken under the wings of Commercial Agent, Jennifer Layton as her assistant. In a whirlwind  2 months,  Jodi learned enough to run KSA Commercial Deptartment for 2 more months while Jennifer was away on maternity. It was a crash course that landed her in an unexpected career as Junior agent! She always had a knack for advising young actors and managing friends and family, so this really came quite naturally. She is proud to be growing alongside Jennifer and spreading her wings to now work under the amazing Nicole Dernersesian as well. As an actress in Film, TV, Commercials and Stage, Jodi understands the needs of an actor as well as the nuances of different auditions and years of auditions and casting director workshops have taught her what Casting Directors expect and desire. Jodi recently spent a few months interning  for Marisa Ross in the casting office at Fox for "How I met Your Mother". This, and being a reader for many of their pilots and films has also taught her great perspective from the side of casting to pass on to her clients.
