Masters Candidate, NYU Steinhardt, Department of Food Studies & Nutrition. A self-proclaimed nutrition nerd, Jody began exploring the world of healthy eating as far back as the mid-80’s when health food stores were small, dusty and smelled like wheat germ. In 2015, she enrolled in NYU’s highly regarded Nutrition & Food Studies masters program where she is currently studying all aspects of our food system. Before making the career change, Jody spent twenty years in the fashion world where she created The Pregnancy Survival Kit, a little white box which contained a hip, black wardrobe-in-a-box for pregnancy women. This kit revolutionized the maternity industry and her brand, Belly Basics, was sold in department stores all over the world. Her book, Pregnancy Chic, was published by Random House in 1998.
