Jodi Watkins

Jodi Watkins

Case Manager

Jodi Bass married Tom Watkins on December 6th (the day before the bombing of Pearl Harbor) only several years later.  She and her husband have enjoyed 44 booming years together.  She raised two sons, Sam and Travis in Fortville.  She is proud of her two granddaughters, Ellery and Emery.

Jodi has had her hand in a lot of different jobs.  She was her husband’s bookkeeper for his tire store.  She worked in the school as a Library Asst. to be on the same schedule as her boys.  After they were self-sufficient, she worked at Hancock Memorial Hospital Radiology Office.  Jodi worked as an Airline reservationist for ATA, and rented cars for Hertz in Kona, HI.  Then she retired after 13 years as a Flight Attendant for Republic Airlines.

Jodi has since downsized to a 20 acre farm in Mt. Comfort where her husband, Tom grew up. There she enjoys raising chickens.

When Jodi was contemplating retirement, she viewed a spot on a news show about CASA in Marion County. Jodi thought that would be a great way to fill her extra time after retirement. With some investigation, she found CASA in Hancock County.  The Spring of 2018 she finished her training and took on her first case.  That one finished and she took on two more cases.  She now works part-time in the office as Case Manager.
