Bozeman native Jodi Jackson started her career in public accounting in Eugene, Oregon. While she loved exploring the Pacific Northwest, after several years of long hours, she looked at moving closer to family and friends — and actually missed Montana’s seemingly never-ending winters. Working as the Financial Controller at BTi offered an exciting challenge to help grow a small company. She enjoys exploring Montana by mountain biking, camping, backpacking and snowboarding in new places. Jodi has tried her hand at gardening in the short summer, with only very mild success so far.

Growing up on a maple sugar farm in Northern Vermont, Freedle Coty’s fascination with log cabins started at a young age. After high school, his career as a cinematographer and director for the ski film company Level 1 Productions took him around the world, following athletes in wintertime from Japan to Switzerland. That path led Freedle to Montana, where he loves snowboarding, fly fishing, hunting and gardening, as well as photography and design. Freedle also enjoys working with wood and being outdoors in remote locales on BTi projects — and most importantly, working with a really fun and motivating crew.
