Jodi Dueck-Read is a learning facilitator and active participant in social change processes. Prior to re-locating to Manitoba to complete her PhD in Peace and Conflict Studies, she lived and worked at the U.S.-Mexico border where she was Associate for Migration and Peacebuilding with West Coast Mennonite Central Committee (MCC). For six years, she worked with MCC in Santiago, Chile and Santa Cruz, Bolivia. She enjoys teaching adult students, speaking Spanish, and participating in actions intended to provoke social change.

On weekends you can find her hanging out with her wife and 18-month son, biking around the city, and finding new hiking trails around the Whiteshell Provincial Park. She also travels to her spirit home in Tucson, Arizona as often as possible.
