Meet Jodie Streit

Jodie Streit came to Placitas from Texas in 1976.  She received her Masters in Sociology from Texas Woman's University.  Her work history is varied, including teaching Sociology at TWU, working in a Help Center for Vietnamese refugees, owning and running 3 video stores, practicing Hypnotherapy, teaching HypnoBirthing to pregnant couples and attending many births as a Birth Doula.  She first began working at the Rebuilding Together Sandoval County Thrift Store about 6 years ago and is presently running that operation.  She joined the RTSC Board 3 years ago.  "I love working at the store.  I have met so many wonderful and interesting people there.  I think that the store plays a vital role in Sandoval County:  gives people a place to take their gently used items,  provides household items to the community at very reasonable prices, helps fund the repair work that RTSC does.
