About Julia Jordan

  • Values

    To build relationships with people, not complete transactions. To be clear in my message and never sell someone on something I wouldn't use myself.

  • Goals

    To make JagSuite the go-to CMS program worldwide for all chambers, associations and businesses. An all-in-one solution. Experience the JAG difference!

  • Hobbies

    I enjoy hiking, I live for football season (go Hawks), random spontaneous road trips to destinations unknown, cooking is therapeutic for me and in my off time you can find me on the ocean or lakes across the country.

About Me

I have good personal relationship skills and am able to communicate well verbally and in writing. Experience includes a diversified background in economic development. Practical work collaboration with different aspects of tourism and economic vitality working in partnership with other like-agencies.  

I have prepared and given a variety of presentations for different audiences including city councils, the board of county commissioners, management teams, stakeholders, employees, colleagues, business leaders, the general public, legislators, civic and business organizations and neighborhood groups. I value professional management and am committed to on-going professional development.

I have had the pleasure of working with and developing a dedicated, effective and supportive team of staff and volunteers who are all champions of the organizations that I have worked for and who support the local merchants, businesses and the community.
