From a young age, Cody developed a passion for the outdoors and maintenance of equipment, because he was fortunate to be raised in Florida State Parks. Cody officially started with the Florida Park Service fourteen years ago and has worked at various parks across the state. 

His first ranger position was at Florida Caverns.  In 2010 he transferred to Gold Head. He was promoted to PSS (Park Service Specialist) at Sebastian River and quickly promoted to APM (Assistant Park Manager) for St George Island. His current role is APM for Fort Clinch. He shared his experiences, as an Assistant Park Manager, have allowed him to expand into community involvement and growing future leaders.

While moving around the state for various positions, his wife, Bethany, and their two kids, Jacob and Clara, have been able to experience many opportunities that have enriched their lives greatly.  In his free time, he enjoys camping and spending time with his kids teaching them the importance of healthy ecosystems.

Cody looks forward to his new role as Park Manager at Alafia  His official start date is April 20th.
