Soon to be graduated and flung into the proverbial “real world,” Jordan brings to our office an eagerness to learn and a refreshing curiosity about the industry, helping to remind us just how nifty of a gig we have in public relations.
Jordan, a native of Jacksonville, began her collegiate journey as a broadcast journalism major, and discovered soon after that she has a real knack for news and feature writing. After dabbling in print and broadcast journalism, she felt convicted to add a public relations major, in hope of becoming well-versed in various avenues of communication.
Crushing course loads kept Jordan preoccupied, but not quite busy enough to prevent her from joining Alpha Delta Pi sorority, where she was elected to three executive positions and gained invaluable leadership and marketing skills.
Jordan’s other experiences as a “Moc” include contributing to Florida Southern’s student led newspaper “The Southern” and serving as videographer, editor, producer and co-anchor for the campus sports network. She’s amassed more than 180 hours of shooting and editing footage of FSC’s athletic teams.
Jordan lists her coolest achievement at school as meeting a nice boy. Jordan and Jacob Guengerich, an accounting associate for Lockheed Martin Corp. and former member of the Florida Southern baseball team, are set to get hitched this July.
Jordan’s stint with us is her second internship in the communications field. Last summer, she interned with CBS47/FOX30, Jacksonville’s local CBS and FOX news affiliate. Her time spent submersed in the broadcast industry aided her decision to commit to writing and public relations.
“I am so thrilled to have this opportunity with such talented and fun public relations professionals,” says Jordan. “I have such a clearer picture of how this industry operates, and I feel right at home!”
We think she’s pretty neat, too.
“Jordan is a talented writer with an excellent news sense,” says Lorrie Walker. “She has a personality that is ideal of public relations, too. Jordan doesn’t seem to have ever met a stranger.”
Jordan walks across the stage of the Lakeland Center and snags her double degree April 27. Until then, we are pleased to have her company here at LWC.
Welcome aboard, Jordan!
