Jordan Nelson

Social Media Strategist

@jordaninaction @jordaninaction

Get your map ready for the journey to find out who Jordan Nelson really is. The 2015 University of Minnesota graduate, Jordan Nelson is a social media strategist that is always up for an adventure. He gets a thrill out of pushing marketing limits and reaching ambitious goals while finding realistic ways of accomplishing success. Jordan may keep his eyes on the stars, but his feet stay on the ground (Thank Theodore Roosevelt for the poster above his bed). He’s more than just a thinker, he can take innovative ideas and bring them to life. Jordan takes pride in his ability to take a brand to the next level, creatively problem solve, and engage diverse audiences.

He’s not your typical cell phone dependent millennial, he still rings doorbells and has a house phone as a reminder of simpler days. If you must know everything, you won’t find your way to his heart by puppies and pizza alone. Paper towels, cake donuts, and lion head rabbits are all you need. Outside of social media, he is a film-fantatic, has an immense love for reality tv, and enjoys reenacting scenes from movies by visiting where they were filmed. Jordan’s closing statement: “Born and raised on the oxford comma.”
