Jodi is the founder and ceo of JODI MELISSA. In 2019, she was pursuing her Master of Science in Marketing at Georgia State University when the class discussion turned to plastic waste and single use plastic bans.
Being the fashionista that she is, she immediately thought of an idea to create chic tote bags that are affordable and indestructible enough to use as grocery bags, but luxurious enough to carry as an everyday bag.
She realized a lot of brands create "shopping bags", but they are way too expensive to actually use for shopping and are also made of materials that do not hold up to heavy use and spills. The JODI MELISSA tote is where luxury meets logic.
Jodi is also a NASM certified personal trainer and nutrition coach who practices and encourages a mostly plant-based lifestyle. Thus, the phrases on her bags reflect her love for fitness and nutrition and her wish to share it with you.
Thank you for stopping by. We look forward to being bag twins someday. :-)
