Purple and sunflowers are two things you’ll find throughout Jordan’s office; neither overdone nor tacky. Perfect symbols of loyalty for a proud Kansan. As one would expect of a mid-westerner, she’s friendly, brilliant and the most prepared person in the room. What you might not expect, is her quick wit and dry humor behind the sweet smile.
Jordan developed a passion for agriculture growing up rural in Brookville, Kansas. Most recently, she completed her Masters in Agricultural Education from her alma mater, Kansas State University. As an undergraduate, she received a degree in Agricultural Communications and Journalism with a minor in Agricultural Economics from KSU. She also took a couple of agriculture-focused study abroad trips and completed coursework in the international agriculture program while in college. Jordan’s appreciation for agriculture and extensive facilitation background led her to internship experiences with the Kansas Department of Agriculture, Kansas Farm Bureau and eventually Vivayic.
Any organization would be lucky to have Jordan and we considered it a huge win to officially welcome her as a full-time team member in December of 2016. Jordan is a learner and uses her strength to design training programs and curriculum from the learner’s perspective. She has stepped right in on some of our most strategic, innovative and large-scale training initiatives for clients. Jordan’s background in international agriculture made her a perfect fit for on-going curriculum project with our partner, Field of Hope.
Jordan loves traveling. She’s a newbie to painting (her dog serves as an excellent model), and most of her free time is spent around animals – any animal. Jordan lives in Manhattan, Kansas and enjoys cheering on her KSU Wildcats. And, like any good Kansan, Jordan celebrates Kansas Day every January 29th.
