  • Devoted mom of two boys
  • Jodi’s achievements have earned her inclusion in Benchmark Litigation’s “40 & Under Hot List,” The Best Lawyers in America, and Super Lawyers’ list of “Oklahoma Rising Stars.”

“As a small-town girl at heart, energy and natural resources proved to be the perfect fit for my personality. Employees in the oil & gas industry are some of the hardest working people around, and being able to play a small part in helping their success makes my job very gratifying.”

“I am a mom of 2 boys. Work at McAfee & Taft for any length of time and you have seen my kids in the office. To them, my friends at McAfee are like family. The boys have travelled on work trips with me, watched me at trial, and even sat through my lecture at the oil & gas class I teach at OCU Law. My favorite memories are the memories I make with them.”

“I love traveling and exploring. I’ve run 15 marathons, including twice in the Boston Marathon. I have hiked the Grand Canyon twice, once rim-to-rim and once rim-to-rim-to-rim (50 miles). I am always looking for my next adventure.”
