Prior to working at Y.E.T.I., Jordan was a teacher in the Highline School District for six years. Stoked to be able to give Y.E.T.I. her full attention, she could not be more excited to fill the role of executive director and is happiest when she has her boots on her feet. A Pacific Northwest lifer, she has always lived in Washington state where she appreciates easy access to mountains, ocean, rivers, and lakes. Her love of adventure, teaching, and working with youth have all naturally brought her to Y.E.T.I. Some of her favorite adventures have included building her own canoe, two weeks sea kayaking around the San Juans, backpacking the Na Pali Coast, and guiding a raft down the Salmon River. She currently lives part-time in her Sprinter van with her cat.
