Early Life and Education

After graduating high school, she embarked on her career in business by working for a local newspaper as a reporter for several years before meeting and marrying Bill Bode in 1957.
Bode was instrumental in rebuilding Marquette’s standing within the A-10 Conference during his time at Marquette, leading his players with a chip-on-shoulder mentality to reach the A-10 championship, coming within one penalty kick of making it into the NCAA tournament and reaching it themselves. They now plan to return in 2023.

Bode led the Ramblers to an A-10 Championship runner-up finish during his inaugural year as head coach, attributing it to effective communication with players and their strong “chip-on-your-shoulder” mentality. He hopes this approach continues into conference transition season.
