“Starting with her own daughter, Jodi lends her powerful voice to those whose own voices are marginalized in society. This book shouts empowerment to people who have real challenges and differing abilities. Jodi’s book, Chutzpah, Wisdom and Wine, is filled with poignant, touching and unpleasant examples from her own life dealing with the challenges of disabilities. Jodi’s shows us what being an activist really means with her dedication to change the world for her daughter.”
