Jody Rodriguez

Assistant Director of College Counseling


As a college student at Emory, I volunteered in the admission office, giving tours and greeting prospective students. After graduating with a Masters in Accounting, I spent a couple of years as a public accountant with Deloitte in Nashville. I moved home to Tampa in 1999 and decided to go back to what I enjoyed most, working with students as they find their next educational path. I started at Tampa Prep in 2002 as Director of Financial Aid and Associate Director of Admissions.  After taking a few years off to start our family, I returned to Tampa Prep in 2010 to work in the college counseling office.  I believe that the college search can be fun and does not have to be stressful.  My goal is for students to learn about themselves throughout the process and not get overwhelmed. Tampa Prep does such an amazing job preparing our students for college and beyond.  My husband Bryan and I have two daughters Paige ’22 and Payton ’24.  We are avid sports fans and love to support our Tampa professional teams as well as our Terrapin teams. When not at school, we enjoy being outside and spending time with family.
