Joely || Chapter Leader
My name is Joely Rhodes and I am beyond excited to head a chapter in Boise, Idaho. As a fourth generation Idahoan, my heart bleeds with “Idahome” pride. I am an active volunteer with many community organizations, including the Ronald McDonald House, Community Cakes and Idaho Commission for Libraries. I truly believe that the Treasure Valley is a special, unique place and the people that live here are extraordinarily warm and giving.
I am currently the COO of the Bardenay Restaurant and Distillery Group and the CEO of the Rhodes household. I met my wonderful husband, Eric, at the University of Idaho and we made our home in Boise upon graduation in 2004. We have two amazing children, Finley and Asher, and one sweet pup named Teddy. In my spare time, I enjoy baking, reading, golfing, running, and spending time with my family. Every summer we spend as much time as we can camping in the Sawtooth’s, my favorite place in the world.
I am inspired by the Box of Balloons mission and elated to bring it to Idaho. Every child deserves to be celebrated and to feel special, and I am sincerely humbled to play a part.
