Jodi Bettencourt Managing Producer, TravelChannel.com

Jodi Bettencourt has been producing and managing web content for TravelChannel.com for over 7 years. She's enjoying the travel focus after 14 years of producing a variety of expedition and adventure content for Discovery.com, TLC.com and AnimalPlanet.com.

Jodi loves to hit the road, but more often than not, she finds herself traveling vicariously through her contributors and readers. She's recently walked with zombies, overindulged in cheese and chocolate, been snowed-in at multiple airports, cuddled with zoo babies, found bedbugs in hotels and researched every travel app known to humankind -- all without ever leaving her desk.
