If you’ve come into our office during the afternoon, you’ve probably been greeted by our assistant Jordan who works near the front door. She takes care of data management, scans important documents, runs errands, and is always ready to take on any task that needs to get finished. Moreover, even though Jordan only works part-time here during the school year, she’s a big part of what makes Paradiso Insurance function.
Jordan’s also been a part of the team for quite some time, but we wanted to know her even better. So, we asked her a few questions to learn about what she’s really like.
What is your favorite quote?
My favorite quote is “Live. Laugh. Love.” It really speaks to me.
Who is Jordan McKay outside of Paradiso Insurance?
Outside of Paradiso Insurance, I really like to play softball a lot. I also help my brother practice playing basketball. I don’t play basketball myself, but I like to help him improve his skills when I can.
What do you like to do with your free time in the evenings and/or on weekends?
It depends. In the summer time, I play on a travel softball team, but during the school year I study and hang out with friends during the evening and weekends.
Do you have any funny childhood memories?
One time at my birthday party my Uncle was playing horseshoes. He picked up a crab apple to move it and accidentally hit me, right after I had gotten a black eye. I laughed, but it hurt pretty bad.
What was your most recent vacation spot, and the activities you enjoyed while away?
My most recent vacation was 6 years ago. I went to Canada to see the extended part of my family and had a great time. The last vacation I went to before Canada was when I was 10 years old, I went to DisneyLand.
Can you tell me a little bit about your family/home life? Pets? Kids? Etc.
In terms of my family, I have 2 siblings, my older sister and my younger brother. My sister is currently in college. I also have four cats and two dogs.
What are some skills you have at Paradiso Insurance and what can you help our customers with when they stop in?
Even though I may not be able to directly advise you on your insurance policies, I can certainly guide you to the correct agent who can! My skills require me to be focused, organized, and computer oriented this way everything is functioning smoothly here.
How has life for you changed since you started working for Paradiso Insurance?
Life has changed for me greatly because I met my new “family” here. They have introduced me to new and exciting things to enjoy throughout my life. I feel like I can really grow here and connect with everyone.
Is there anything else specifically that you’d like to include?
Well, my social life doesn’t really start until 5pm. This is because I study hard really hard each night to get good grades and like to sleep in on the weekends.
Working hard towards a goal is good for all of us! So, next time you need to stop into our agency, say “hello” to Jordan and she’ll be happy to assist you and guide you in the right direction!
