For the past fifteen years, Jodie McCleland has been a loyal employee in the Accounts Payable department at Airways Freight. From collecting charges and POD’s (proof of delivery’s) to managing the accounts payable of major vendors, Jodie is responsible for taking care of any discrepancies that may arise, which allows the freight to keep moving smoothly.

What she loves most about Airways is the team she works with in Accounts Payable and the camaraderie she shares with the rest of her colleagues. She admires the support they give to their employees and the willingness to help when needed.

While previously working as a CSA Supervisor for ASA/Delta Airlines, Jodie was checking-in some freight for Airways when someone had mentioned there was an opening. After the events of 911 and the recent move of the airport to a different location, she decided it was time for a change. 

Born in Canoga Park California, Jodie grew up an Army brat. Upon her father’s retirement, they decided to place their roots in Prairie Grove, Arkansas. Growing up on a small hog farm, raising pigs, rabbits and horses, Jodie enjoyed country life. Her childhood consisted of running through the fields and enjoying nature.

Jodie has three boys, one daughter-in-law and five grandkids. When she has spare time, she enjoys baking and has made beautifully decorated and decadent desserts. In 2016 she and her niece won the Grand Champion ribbon at the Washington County Fair for her Raspberry Cream Cheese rolls. When she is not baking, she also loves to country dance.

She is bold and charismatic, and her presence fills a room. Her work ethic and take-charge attitude have been an integral part of her career at Airways, and we are glad she is a part of our team.
