Hi! I’m Jordan. Originally from Minnesota, I have spent the last seven years in Whatcom County and have found a home in this community! Before putting down roots, I spent a lot of time abroad in diverse cultures, which gave me an appreciation for the transformative power of collaboration within a community. In my current role as the development director for Christian Hope Association (CHA), encompassing New Way Ministries (a transitional housing program for women and their children experiencing homelessness) and Project Hope Food Bank & Community Assistance, I am heavily involved in engaging with the incredible people who contribute to what makes this area so outstanding. I spend time presenting our work to various audiences, from grantmakers to local businesses and clubs. In addition to speaking, I plan our fundraising strategies, engage with potential donors, and have a lot of fun overseeing events.
In my spare time, you can find me with friends, learning something new, traveling, or at a board meeting for Racial Unity Now; an organization focused on bridging racial divides in our community.
I am thankful to be a part of WYPs and look forward to the next year and what it brings.
