Jody Christensen is the executive director for the McMinnville Economic Development Partnership.
MEDP leads efforts that foster a thriving epicenter of traded-sector business in McMinnville. We define traded-sector as any company that creates goods or services used or consumed outside of the region. We focus on this sector not only in the support of high-paying jobs, but also due to the need to continually bring new money into the community.
Jody’s unbridled enthusiasm for all things McMinnville is contagious. She loves our community and it shows – daily. She is always looking for new ways to get the word out about things made in McMinnville. Just ask her about peanut butter, she’ll give you two examples of how Mac does it right.
