Jody Wheeler graduated from James Madison University with a Bachelors in Political Science, went on to earn a Masters in Counseling Psychology from George Mason University, and added another Masters in Screenwriting and Film from UCLA. The through-line between all three degrees? Narrative. "Story". The particular way people order and present instances of emotions, ideas and events to convey a particular meaning. This applies whether they are describing themselves (Counseling Psychology), their societal goals (Political Science), or their creative expression. (Writing and Film).
"Everyone has something to say," he frequently remarks. "The challenge is to first figure out what you want to say, explore the best way to say it, then to revise and polish your message to the point it shines as bright and clear as it can."
