Cody was born and raised in Plano, Texas. He moved to Oklahoma in 2011 to pursue a degree in kinesiology and play baseball for Oklahoma Baptist University. After graduating he and his wife, Joli, settled down in Norman, Oklahoma and started their family with a little girl, Linley, in 2017. Cody worked as a fitness manager and exercise physiologist in the corporate fitness industry before returning to school to pursue OT. During his first semester in the MOT program Joli and Cody took custody of her 13 year old brother, Aiden, who is on the Autism spectrum. His experience working and living with Aiden and Linley, working in the fitness world, and shadowing experiences in pediatrics are what motivated Cody to apply for the grant. Cody is incredibly excited about this opportunity and for the OT adventures that await!
