Meet Jordan, Knox!
“All things are possible with coffee and a little bit of glitter,” says Jordan, a former English literature major, after a month as a Leadership Consultant (LC) with Kappa Kappa Gamma.
As former House Chairman and Vice President-Organization for her chapter, Jordan interacted with Leadership Consultants before taking on the job, though she never imagined that she would become a Leadership Consultant herself. The path set forth by these women whom she admired opened up the door of possibility to Jordan, who happily took the chance to make a difference in the lives of collegians.
After being on the road, Jordan has learned to love adventure. “I wanted to see the country, to be challenged and see what I was capable of. I have already met so many women whom I admire and I am so proud to call my sisters.”
Problem solving skills, interpersonal communication, teamwork and critical thinking have become skills that she has perfected during her travels. These skills give Jordan confidence, enriching her personal and business life. “The skills I’m learning on the road are the kind that can be translated to almost any job in any field. I’ve learned how to connect with almost any person I meet … whether it’s asking for directions in New York City or developing fast friendships with new people, I’m prepared to make the most of the world.”
Those fast friendships will follow Jordan to her next adventure and shape her experiences there. The chapters she visits keep in contact with her and she thrives on seeing them grow and develop, not only as women, but as an organization. “I never imagined that I would become as invested in these chapters as I am. Their success and happiness is also my own.”
“There is rarely a day that passes where I am not inspired by the women who make up this organization.” Jordan considers this one of the many rewards of being in her position. “They are, without question, some of the most compassionate, talented and loyal women I have ever known.”
Though her year on the road has just begun, Jordan has an optimistic approach to the rest of her journey. “During the long weeks and late nights, after four flights and a handful of delays, I am lucky to spend time with the women who make Kappa what it is today. Every day is an opportunity to do something memorable, generous or make someone laugh or smile. There’s no doubt in my mind that I have the best job in the entire world.”
