Jodi Manske was born, raised and currently lives in Monroe, Wisconsin. Her passion for the dental field started as a kid when she would spend time at her stepdad’s dental practice. She knew at that time that she wanted to become a hygienist, so she first trained as a dental assistant. She then attended Waukesha County Technical College, where she received her associate degree in dental hygiene in 2002.

Since then, Jodi has had a wide-range of experience in both private practice and dental public health settings. Her passion lies in community dental health and she has devoted her entire career around working and volunteering in various public health organizations. Most recently, she joined Madison College dental advisory board and is the co-race director for the David Kuckuk Memorial Herzlauf 5K.

When she isn’t practicing hygiene, she is a proud mother to her 11-year old son, Drew, enjoys running 5K’s, participates in Crazy Legs, and completed a 10K race in September, 2016.
