Through some searching for opportunities that would lead her to serve veterans and their families, she found a Veteran Build Development AmeriCorps position at Habitat for Humanity of Snohomish County and applied. Jordyn moved from Pittsburgh to Washington because she was so passionate about serving veterans and active military members.
While continuing work on her master’s degree, Jordyn serves at Snohomish County Habitat to create a home ownership program specifically for veterans and their families.
“I get to work with local veterans’ organizations, the staff here at the affiliate and corporate groups to create a place for veterans to help other veterans obtain affordable housing,” Jordyn said.
At the end of her AmeriCorps year, Jordyn will move back to Pittsburgh to complete her master’s degree in public and international affairs with a focus in international security and intelligence. She hopes to pursue a career in the Navy and then return to serving veterans one day.
