The Wellington Chamber of Commerce recently welcomed Jodi Gast, vice president of the Gast Construction Group, to the President’s Circle. She is proud to be a small business owner with her husband, Allen, and to work with their team as the Gast Construction Group celebrates its 10th year in business this year.
Born in Iowa, Gast had big dreams and goals from an early age. Raised by a father who worked in a factory and a mother who stayed at home then had a government job, Gast knew she had to create a different path in order to achieve the life she wanted. Excelling academically, athletically and in leadership roles in high school and college, she achieved success in Iowa, then made moves to South Carolina, Alabama and finally to Florida. She prides herself on having her own successful 15-year career in the pharmacy technology industry, where she worked with thousands of pharmacies, hospitals and doctors, helping them to open their own small businesses and to automate their pharmacies with technology. In 2016, Gast walked away from her career to join her husband and the team at Gast Construction Group full-time.
At the Gast Construction Group, she uses her talents not just as an owner, but as the company’s CFO, focusing her skills on all aspects of construction accounting. Gast is also a licensed Realtor who currently uses her real estate license and knowledge to build development deals with clients and investors, and to educate other real estate professionals on the value of Gast Construction Group’s services.
Gast loves spending time with her family and her two rescue dogs. She is fiercely competitive and has completed two marathons, three half-marathons and was an avid tennis player and CrossFitter until undergoing spinal fusion surgery in 2016. She enjoys boating and fishing with her husband and their two sons.
In addition to her President’s Circle membership, Gast is an active member of the Small Business Committee and the Women of the Wellington Chamber.
The Wellington Chamber’s exclusive President’s Circle is a unique and exciting opportunity extended to established leaders of the community, local businesses and entrepreneurs. For more information, call (561) 792-6525.
