Jordan manages the Farming in the Floodplain Project (FFP). This Floodplains by Design-funded project integrates agricultural needs into habitat restoration and flood risk reduction infrastructure projects. Through coral reef restoration work as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Western Samoa, Jordan found that she most enjoys working with communities towards a common conservation goal. After working on coral reef conservation for The Nature Conservancy, she was excited to take on local, place-based work managing the FFP at PCC Farmland Trust. Jordan now works with the Washington Stormwater Center and the Center for Sustaining Agriculture and Natural Resources, collaborating closely with Pierce County, Pierce Conservation District, the South Puget Sound Salmon Enhancement Group, local non-profit organizations, and the agricultural community. Jordan has a Masters in Environmental Management from Yale University, and a B.S. in Zoology and Fisheries from the University of Washington. Outside of work, Jordan enjoys running, knitting, gardening, and crafting elaborate domino structures with her two kids.
