What is something most people don’t know about you?

Most people don’t know that I have 5 siblings! Being raised in such a big family and always around chaos has made me have a love for a busy lifestyle.

Are you more of an introvert or extravert?

I am a true extravert. I love being around people – it gives me so much energy!

If you were to define your superpower, what would it be?

My superpower is inclusion. I always push to make everyone I meet feel comfortable, heard, and included in any environment. One of the Growth Street pillars is inclusion and I love that my superpower aligns with the brand values.

What lights your fire?

I love talking to business professionals and learning more about different industries. Learning from professionals and what their experiences have taught them has always been a huge interest for me.

Do you have a pet?

Yes! I have a 5-year-old Great Dane & Mastiff mix that is brindle. Her name is Bali and yes, she is a huge dog!

What is something you wish you knew sooner? 

I wish I knew that you could make good money at any job you choose. Going into college I thought I had to become a doctor to make money, so I was pre-med. Then I decided to switch to Marketing and started learning things I was truly interested in and passionate about. I realized you can hustle in any job, not just the ones that are glorified because they’re ‘high-paying.’

In your words, what is the power of brand?

Creating a brand that speaks to your consumers, inspires them, and really connects with them is an extremely powerful asset to a company. A brand can motivate consumers and change their behaviors. It has been so interesting to see how we help our clients leverage the power of brand here at Growth Street. I

What does being a part of the A Team mean to you?

Being a part of the A Team means working with incredibly experienced, driven, and creative professionals. It means being able to share any ideas and receive feedback no matter how crazy the idea! It has been such a great environment to grow my knowledge and skills because of how open-minded and supportive everyone on the team is.

What makes Growth Street special?

Growth Street is a powerhouse of ideas, knowledge, creativity, and awesome people. The business is special because it is the ultimate example of how different professionals with different expertise can come together and create amazing things.

Giddy up, Jordan! We are so lucky to have you on our A Team.
