Hi, my name’s Jordan. I recently discovered I’m a born communicator with a passion for problem solving
Heading into school, my chaotic creativity and rapidly changing interests left me with anything but a clear path towards my career. I wanted to be a surgeon, politician, conservationist, cancer researcher (and even an agronomist, for a fleeting moment)—there was too much to learn. Graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Madison seemed easy compared to finding a career for the rest of my life.
And then, with some encouragement from a professor, it hit me. All these interests centered around two things: People and science. (Lucky for me UW had a major in life sciences communication.)
Four years later, here we are. I’ve focused my energy and put it to work as a strategic communicator. That’s marketing-speak for utilizing communications to complete a goal, whether that’s changing an attitude or telling a compelling story to sell a product or idea. I use my science background to develop research-grounded measurement tools and convey complex information.
Most recently I was an associate at MorganMyers, a farm-to-table strategic communications firm. My day-to-day consisted of fostering successful client relationships, brainstorming kick-a** ideas to move our clients forward, and executing those ideas.
Today, I’m a senior communications associate at Post Consumer Brands, bridging the communications gap between employees, customers, and consumers. Acting as the newsroom for the company, I spend my days digging and developing compelling story-lines to build trust and brand recognition.
