Justin and Jade Woodard
Tell us a little bit about yourself:
Justin: Born and raised in southwest Virginia. I went to college in Kentucky at Alice Lloyd College on a baseball scholarship where I met Jade. We got married in 2008. I started working in Northeast Ohio in the oil/gas industry in 2011. We officially moved up here in January of 2015 and our son Kasen made his debut in February 2015. I currently work for FirstEnergy. In my spare time, I enjoy hunting and farming.
We want to get to know you! What are some of your favorites? (food, color, season, activity, restaurant, place to shop, etc.)
Activity: Sitting on the porch or playing in the yard- just enjoying the day together
Season: Deer season 😉
Activity: Spending time with my little man (Kasen) helping at the farm
How did you learn about GiGi’s and what prompted you to become a volunteer?
What is your role at the Playhouse?
Justin: “Whatever Megan or Jade tells me to do.”
From installation of the new cameras, building the stage for the MPR, changing lightbulbs, putting equipment together, shoveling snow off the sidewalks, anything manual labor.
What is your favorite experience you have had at the Playhouse?
The Woodard family has given countless hours (over 400!) of time and effort to GiGi’s Playhouse to make sure our facility is functional, upkept, and safe; for special events to make sure they run smoothly and everyone has a great time; and to meeting and welcoming new families and being a friendly face any time they are at the Playhouse. The words THANK YOU do not do enough to show our appreciation for you both!
