Meet Jordan. She spent her childhood in the cornfields of Nebraska hearing about the good ‘ol days in Sweden. Which is probably why she has the dream of having a fully sustainable farm someday.
She received her Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and Ethics from Texas and received her Associates in Intercultural Studies from Missouri. As soon as she could Jordan fled America to go off in exploration (exploring is one of her favorite things to do – whether it’s new food, a new land, or new books). She has conducted outreach and community development efforts in 10 different countries; ranging from building water systems in South Africa (2005) to teaching English in Thailand (2009) to studying the Italian culture around coffee shops (2008). She loves studying people and the communities they surround themselves with.
When Jordan isn’t at work she is either doing yoga, snowboarding or mountain biking, or rock climbing, or … you get the picture. Her home is the outdoors, her obsession is organizing, her hero is Abe Lincoln.
Jordan joined the Earn to Learn Dream Team in July 2015. “I am in this work because I want to change lives and change the world. By empowering students to take control of their futures by teaching them to be responsible with their money and time, we are changing lives. By giving them an education we are changing the world.”
