Jodi Towns, Founder and Marketing Mixologist for Towns Consulting LLC. My business background is a bit of a puzzle, with all points back to “I love people!” I’ve been called by many friends and colleagues a “connector” and one of my favorite quotes that reads something like this, “A room full of strangers are just friends I haven’t yet met.” Professionally, I’ve worked mostly in the financial and healthcare industry, held positions like Director of Marketing, Training & Development Director, and CEO of a staffing/recruiting firm.
Towns Consulting LLC offers go-to market strategies mostly in the healthcare space. I teach and coach physicians and their staff on how to organically market and promote their medical practices to draw in their perfect patient. Jodi offers consulting services to help businesses (mostly physicians and other medical practitioners, including cosmetic and aesthetic service providers) create marketing strategies to launch or re-launch their business products or services to the world. Jodi has spent the past 7 plus years in healthcare, specifically Concierge Medicine (membership based medicine) aesthetics and nutrition as a Marketing Director and knows what it takes to make a medical practice stand out from the rest, attract your ideal patient, build physician referral partnerships and create a practice you can be proud of!
Founded in 2017, Jodi Towns has organized Networking for Healthcare Mix and Mingle events bi-monthly growing her group to 200 plus members. This group is comprised of physicians, practitioners, medical marketers/promoters and is an opportunity to build connections and relationships to support others in the medical community. She is the organizer and event coordinator for HealthNow Expo coming to Scottsdale, March 2018.
Jodi is called on to speak at events, webinars, and conferences to share advice and educate on various topics around business, healthcare marketing and networking.
Jodi has consulted for a broad spectrum of clients including:
- Health and Wellness Care, Geralyn Jones FNP
- King Integrative Primary Care

WHY BEST OF HEALTH?
I am a Physician Assistant who has been caring for patients for over 20 years and Family Practice (cradle to grave) is my specialty.
Following the footsteps of three generations of family practice physicians (my father, grandfather and great grandfather) this was a natural and genetic calling that I do not regret.
Given this, I have a unique perspective and it’s time to share that perspective through Ask the PA. As a health care provider, teacher, business owner, patient, and advocate for my family and friends throughout the years, it has been painfully apparent there are disconnects within the current state of health care in the US and throughout the world. It can be confusing and frankly very scary.
It is my goal though this series, Best of Health, to bring people together that are passionate about their roles in the business of health care… and yes, whether or not you want to hear that it’s a business, it is — and that’s the fact. I will introduce to you great, dedicated practitioners and people with a passion for getting the word out about their personal journeys and causes. I will provide information about navigating through a confusing system, asking the right questions and share ways for saving money and time along the way.
It’s time to create change by partnering, empowering, and focusing on the patient, their families and their providers of care. It’s time for you to take the driver’s seat rather than leave your health care solely in the hands of entities such as insurance companies and the pharmaceutical industry.
Stay tuned. Here’s to your Best of Health.
