Brief biography

Jordan is originally from Dodgeville, WI, and studied abroad for a semester in Seville, Spain while earning his bachelor's degree in history and Spanish education from UW-Platteville.  Before coming to UWL, Jordan taught Spanish at Sparta High School for seven years, where he also had the amazing opportunity to lead students on several international trips.  He made the switch to UWL in order to earn his master's degree in Student Affairs Administration and got a position in International Education & Engagement as an Education Abroad Advisor.  In his free time, Jordan enjoys traveling, reading, listening to music, and spending time with his wife and daughter. 

Besides studying in Spain, Jordan has traveled to Canada, Portugal, France, Italy, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Slovakia, and the UK.  Jordan would take the opportunity to travel anywhere, but his top destinations include Australia, Japan, Morocco, South Africa, Jordan, and the Netherlands!
