During high school Jodie gained valuable experience in jazz ensemble playing at the Wollongong Conservatorium of Music. She was awarded jazz scholarships from Wollongong Conservatorium and IAJE Pan-Pacific Jazz camps.
 
In 2007 Jodie toured America, with the Wollongong Conservatorium Jazz Orchestra. She gained more experience of the heady US Jazz scene during subsequent study in New York with world-class drummers Michael Carvin, Eric Harland and Kenny Washington. Jodie has played with many acclaimed Australian jazz musicians including James Muller, James Morrison, Dale Barlow, Bobby Gebert, Carl Dewhurst, Craig Scott and Matt McMahon.
