Emerging playworker, social development practitioner and energetic champion for social justice.
Jordan believes that in Australia, children are often ignored as active members of society. The consequences of this heavily influences happy and healthy childhood development. She is passionate about protecting and supporting the right of children to be seen, heard and play. It is important for Jordan to be part of organisations which exist for more than capital gains, as this aligns with her values, ethics and sense of justice.
Jordan has been working in the not-for-profit sector for over five years and found her place in the childhood space more recently. She is equipped with a diverse and deep understanding of many theoretical underpinnings which create valuable frameworks for the work she does. Jordan recently graduated university with a dual degree in Human Services and Criminology and Criminal Justice and is passionate about identifying and addressing social injustices. Jordan is the youngest member on the board, and considers this an extremely special role. Growing up in Logan, she often draws upon her own childhood experiences to provide relevant context for all board activities. Youth, energy and sheer stubbornness is clearly demonstrated with her action orientated nature.
To date Jordan has organised, managed, and contributed to many play opportunities for children and families in Logan. In 2021 Jordan was an executive assistant and key event organiser for the Childhood Summit, hosted at Gracehouse in Logan. This event spanned over three days and most importantly, had 16 child keynote speakers. It was a space for children to be heard, and for key adults and stakeholders to listen.
In her down time, Jordan likes to be outdoors, stay active, consume many books and spend time with her two cats, pony and axolotl (called Pineapple).
