30 Mar Women in Towne Spotlight-Jody McDonald
In celebration of National Women’s History Month, and in the spirit of honoring the achievements of accomplished women in our communities, in March we will spotlight Women in Towne.
Today we introduce you to Jody McDonald, District Manager, Louisville.
Jody joined Towne Park in 2013 as an Area Manager in Nashville, TN. With over 10 years of experience as a District Manager with Talbots retail stores, she was highly recruited. She quickly integrated into our culture, displaying a passion for development, coupled with a strength-based leadership style – two key qualities that have underpinned her success. In October 2015, Jody made a leap of faith and moved to the horse-racing capital of Louisville, KY. In 18 months, she has proven the ability to adapt to any challenge while exceeding expectations. In honor of her achievements, in 2016, Jody was one of two District Managers in the company to achieve the prestigious “Winner’s Circle award.”
Jody graduated from the University of Tennessee and is a huge UT football fan. In her free time she enjoys spending quality time with her family in Nashville, going on hikes or scrambling up mountainsides.
“Jody has been an extremely valuable member on our team. She is one of the most proactive and consistent communicators I have had the pleasure to work with. Time and time again, Jody has proven the power of a diverse background and thought. It is clear to all that we are stronger with her on our team,” commented Towne Park’s Brian George, Regional Vice President – MidSouth.
We are proud to have this Woman in Towne Leading, Serving and Growing at Towne Park.
