After graduating with a degree in Finance, Jordan would like to pursue a career in consulting. He will begin his internship with Ernst & Young's FSO Advisory group in New York City in the summer of 2018. Jordan's interest in consulting developed after watching his father struggle to maintain a small business. Jordan hopes to use his experience from his internship with Ernst & Young and his passion for diversity and inclusion to do consulting work specifically for businesses that are owned by women and/or underrepresented minorities.

In addition to Jordan's professional goals, he plans on establishing a scholarship fund for high school students that have financial need by 2019.
