I have been in this industry for the last 12 years. I started as a job developer then became an independent contractor/ PSW. Working for myself proved to be a challenge. I knew I needed to expand if I wanted to continue providing quality services. Bridge City Mentors opened in early spring of 2016! Mentoring and advocacy has always been a passion of mine. To have the opportunity to teach others how to mentor and advocate for individuals and to provide the empowering services we do, is a lifelong dream. I am grateful everyday to be doing what I love, with people that I admire and respect. On my off time, I enjoy exploring the outdoors with my wife and two husky dogs. I love photography, gardening, and mixed media art.

Jodi Barasa – Operations Manager
I have lived in Oregon for over 20 years after moving from Chicago, IL. I graduated from PSU in 2016 with a Bachelor of Science in Film. My best times are had cooking and sharing a meal with people I love, dancing and singing along to my favorite songs, getting out into nature and full gut laughing on a daily basis. I believe everyone has the power to live their best lives if given the opportunity and am here to assist those who need a little encouragement and guidance.
