The 2018 Nutrien Indigenous Youth Harvard Scholarship Award

Jodie Wells is a Mi’kmaq woman from the town of Hughes Brook, Newfoundland and is part of the Qalipu First Nation. Jodie grew up in a small area but has always had big dreams of business and entrepreneurship.  Jodie attended Grenfell Campus of Memorial University and received a Bachelor of Business Administration in 2011.  From there, she was hired at the Qalipu First Nation as a Financial Officer and started working towards completing her CMA, completing the designation in 2015. Shortly after, she was promoted to Manager of Finance, adding more supervisory roles.  Recently she received another promotion to the position of Comptroller, which added even more responsibility in directing the annual budget process and supporting the strategic planning process.  Working for the First Nation has provided many opportunities for Jodie to give back to her community. She is excited for the opportunity to learn and to bring back important knowledge to her Band.
