January Volunteer of the Month

Jodi Malecha

We are excited to announce that Jodi is our Volunteer of the Month for December. Jodi is a weekly front desk volunteer at the Arb and volunteers with many of our events and other tasks, such as soliciting free coupons and gift cards for the Haunted Trail.


Jodi moved to Baxter in the middle of March 2022 from Apple Valley. She first came to the Arb in search of a garden plots to rent.  After chatting at the front desk, she left having completed a volunteer application with tentative dates set to start at the front desk!


Jodi Ioves the staff and volunteers she gets to work with.  She shares, “I have been completely amazed with the amazing projects, classes and commitment to the environment and giving back to the community.  Of course, the Arb is a wonderful place to walk and experience peace, calm and beauty of our natural resources.”


Prior to Jodi’s move and semi-retirement, she worked 35+ years as a paralegal; 15 years as a business litigation paralegal and 20+ years as a corporate and transactional paralegal.  In addition to the Arb she also currently works part-time as a Triage Receptionist in the Emergency Department at St. Joseph’s Hospital.  


In Jodi’s spare time she enjoys being with family and friends, golfing, lake time and trying new adventures like Curling.
