The Origin of "Jodi Bean"

Happy Father's Day to my Dad! I'm so thankful to have a father who does so many things for me. My father is an amazing teacher and role model. He is my loan officer, my car go to guy, my furniture putter together and so much more. He LOVES sports, especially baseball and is an excellent umpire. It is amazing to watch him with Peyton and Ella because he is such a sweet Grampy. The girls adore him as much as he adores them!

In honor of Father's Day I thought I would tell you where I got my nickname. Many people ask me why Jodi Bean or why The Bean Team and the simple answer is it is the nickname my dad gave me!

I asked both my parents if they could remember when my dad started calling me Bean and they weren't exactly sure but believe it was as early as my first birthday which falls near Easter. So instead of a jelly bean I was a Jodi Bean. My dad likes nicknames and it just stuck. He is the only one that calls me that and to this day still refers to me as Bean. When it came time to name my team for the Boston MS Walk I came up w/ a few ideas but The Bean Team just seemed to be the most catchy and has the biggest personal connection. So there you have it!


Love, Bean

P.S. Happy Father's Day to my brother, Timmy! You are an excellent dad to your two little girls. I'm so happy you made me an auntie!
