As an educator, writer, and research consultant, I work across disciplines and communities to listen and share stories, find new possibilities, and better understand the places we call home.

I am trained as a community-centered research consultant and practitioner with expertise in cultural and social systems. Specifically, I am interested in projects and questions addressing issues of equity. Qualitative research across disciplines, course development, and program assessments are a few of the projects I have currently been working on.

I am an educator and a learner. Nearly a decade of active online, distance, and face-to-face instructional design, curriculum development, and community building experiences inform my facilitation and education work.

I also love walking dogs, holding cats, raising chickens, weeding gardens and practicing yoga (500 hour YTT in progress). For more about my yoga practice see: www.jordandoesyoga.com. Additionally, I help manage Winding Stream Farm, where we grow certified organic CBD hemp in the heart of central Appalachia.
