Women in STEAM: Jody Rule

Jody Rule | FIS | SVP, Practice Management Group Executive

A Day at Work… Every day is different and brings challenges, opportunities and variety to the day. I spend much time collaborating, challenging the teams, solution designing, problem solving, mentoring and working with our customers.

Career Evolution… I started with Systematics, currently FIS, in the management trainee program as a computer programmer. Within FIS, there are so many diverse and different career opportunities and the company encourages employees to change roles to grow and learn.  I gained all my experience in FIS working in a variety of roles. 

Beginning Interests… I always loved math and problem solving and decided to take a computer programming class in college. I loved it. I had a wonderful teacher who encouraged me to continue to take more courses and major in computer science and minor in business. 

Advice…Women tend to be certain they can do the job before taking risks to try something new or seek a promotion.  Have confidence in yourself and take chances.  There is a community of people to mentor and support you.

These wonder women are redefining what STEAM means in the Capital City. With exciting careers in science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics – each reflects WIT (women in tech) and true grit for making the most of every opportunity. Here’s to the PowHER of knowledge.
