Jody Peloza Bentz '67

Owner, Jody Peloza Bentz & Associates

Bachelor of Arts in Spanish, Minor in French
School of Liberal Arts

A multilingual Fulbright Scholar and Kellogg Fellow who lived in Colombia and Spain, Jody Bentz knows what it’s like to be surrounded by a language other than her native tongue. And, she is realistic about the social and economic challenges and opportunities that come with the current influx of non-English speaking immigrants. That’s why her firm, jody peloza bentz & associates, partnered with Colorado-based LingoLynx, LLC to establish Reality Language® Midwest to provide innovative and practical language acquisition tools that address linguistic and cultural gaps in the workplace. Already active and successful in 17 counties in northeastern Indiana, Reality Spanish® and Reality English® are real-life, contextbased classes that teach phrases customized for specific workforce scenarios typically occurring in education, healthcare, law enforcement, and manufacturing/ production. And by bringing Reality Language® to central Indiana, Bentz is building bridges between Indianapolis professionals and members of the Spanish-speaking community.
