Mary Parr, the owner

I am a native from Chicago, Illinois, now residing in northern Virginia.  I am the mother to an adult son and daughter; also, I have two granddaughters.  I’d worked in the social work field for over thirty years, in addition to owned and ran a non-profit in Fairfax County for over seven years.

Who is Jodie?

Jodie, LLC, was inspired by my granddaughter (Jordan), a very picky eater. As her grandmother, I labored to find foods she would eat. I dreamed she would embrace variety and never frown upon foods just because she hadn't tried them before. Over the years I've been able to create many new dishes that delight her taste buds, and I've found my own calling as a chef in the process! This inspiration to serve up a variety of delicious and nutritious dishes is the undercurrent of my mission here at Jodie, LLC. I hope to bless and nourish your family just as I do my own.
