Episode 131 - Jody Alves
Jody Alves is a 26-year proposal veteran, having worked since 1995 as a contractor and full-timer for International Game Technology (IGT, formerly GTECH), based in Providence, Rhode Island. Jody was born, raised, and educated in Rhode Island. Her path from the University of Rhode Island (URI) to today was a long and winding one – from working on a research program at a local psychiatric hospital, to account executive at a public relations firm (where she wrote her very first proposal!), to managing public relations and advertising for a local bank, to 19 years of freelance marketing communications to…Proposals! Beyond her day job, Jody teaches proposal writing at URI. For 8 years, she has introduced students to the profession, creatively taught the requisite skills for various proposal types, and created a feeder system for local businesses, including IGT. In December, Jody will complete her two-year term as a member of APMP’s International Board of Directors. She joined APMP in 2008, attended her first conference in 2011, and hasn’t missed one since. She presented at six BPC’s and at several chapter symposiums. Her APMP focus has long been on bringing more young people into the profession and developing content for commercial and public sector practitioners. She is working on bringing industry-specific programming to APMP members. Jody is involved with diverse and myriad of hobbies and passion. She started knitting since she was six years old and has an unusual owl collection which she started since she was fourteen. Jody is on her way to completing Top 100 novels of the 20th century and has a passion for backyard birding with at least twenty-three kinds of birds visiting every day. Jody is also really into sports and follows everywhere To Brady goes and always tries to complete puzzles whenever possible.
