Our Team

Jodi Walker

Founder/Executive Director

Jodi has never been afraid to take on controversial issues and has frequently used unorthodox approaches to bridge the cultural, economic, and generational challenges of her Eastern Plains community. Kids At Their Best, which she describes as her “soul work,” exemplifies the strength of her commitment to all children and all families. She has brought together immigrants from Mexico and South America, refugees from Somalia, with local children whose families have lived on the Eastern Plains for generations.

Jodi is committed to addressing the huge disparities in children’s health and wellbeing based on their racial and socio-economic status, and is part of CYSHCNet Advisory Group, a national group of child health systems researchers, clinicians, and children’s organizations based at the University of Colorado/Children’s Hospital. She is also a member of It’s About Kids (IAK), the Colorado Children’s Campaign’s statewide, grassroots child advocacy network.

Jodi’s understanding of the complex interplay of major political, financial and distribution systems – and the impact at the local level - led to an invitation to serve to the Colorado Farm & Food Systems Response Team as it addressed the challenge of getting food to people during the pandemic. She also serves on the board of the statewide Community Resource Center, Morgan County Food Coalition, and Youth Matters-Morgan County Youth Coalition.

Jodi overcame a traumatic brain injury to pursue her soul work on behalf of children and families. She lives in Wiggins, CO with husband Landry and their children.
