SMPS: Are you a Wichita native? If not, where did you grow up? What do you like about living in Wichita?
Jordan: I am a true Wichitan, born and raised. I was also a very typical Wichitan when it came to wanting to leave Wichita. I moved to Kansas City after getting married in 2012 so that my husband, Samuel, could earn his doctorate in Physical Therapy. After his graduation in 2015, we moved back to Wichita to be closer to family. Moving away was a true gift because I was able to see Wichita from a different perspective. Wichita has got it going on. From the restaurants, to the museums, and the impressive brewery scene, Wichita is a great place to live, travel to, work, and enjoy. We also just moved into a loft downtown so we are even closer to all of the awesome events!
SMPS: Where did you go to college? What is your degree in?
Jordan: I earned my Communication degree in 2012 with an emphasis in Journalism and a minor in English from Tabor College in Hillsboro, KS.
SMPS: What are your hobbies?
Jordan: I enjoy a good book, a great beer, and hot yoga. If you tell me you love Harry Potter we are instant friends. I also volunteer with the local animal rescue group, Wichita Animal Action League, to help find forever homes for animals in the community. In addition to SMPS, I am also a part of YPW and will soon be a part of its Access Wichita Action Team.
SMPS: Are you married? Do you have any kids or pets?
Jordan: My husband and I have one furbaby, Penelope. She is a yorkipoo and the love of my life!
SMPS: Tell us a little about your new position at SJCF Architecture. Where did you work before SJCF?
Jordan: As the Marketing Coordinator at SJCF Architecture, my main focus is strategic business and marketing goals in order to promote the firm and cultivate new business and client relationships. I create print and digital marketing materials including managing the social media, work with professional staff on presentations and business interviews, and assist in planning internal events to encourage a fun work culture! My background includes experience as a marketing professional at the Museum of World Treasures in Old Town Wichita and the Kansas City Renaissance Festival in Bonner Springs, KS. SJCF Architecture plays a large part in the development of downtown Wichita, and Wichita as a whole, and that is what excites me about this opportunity! I am looking forward to growing Wichita and showing everyone how special it really is.
