Jodi Andersen, Community Engagement and Social Media Specialist

When my husband and I first moved into our current home, we had an extra bedroom and decided to host an international student for a year, which turned into two. It was a really great experience learning about another culture and sharing ours with her. That experience has been an advantage for me to understand the perspective of host families for MLI Homestay.

I have worked in the media world for all of my adult career, originally in publishing and moving into the digital world a few years ago.  I’m excited for this opportunity to work with MLI Homestay and help build the community engagement even greater.

Outside of work I am glued to my family and having fun together. I’m a brownie leader for our local brownie group, enjoy cooking, knitting and reading, and spending time at our summer cottage on Georgian Bay.

What I love about MLI – I love the supportive family MLI Homestay creates for each host and student. Everyone at MLI is so dedicated to making a student’s time in Canada the very best experience for both the student and host family, and it is evident from the company dynamic
