Jordan Greenberg brings diverse professional experiences in education, leadership development, and nonprofit management to the Holdsworth team. Prior to Holdsworth, she worked in public affairs and social services in New York City. Born and raised in Austin, she’s thrilled to return home and have the opportunity to support public school leaders in Texas.
From 2018-2019, Jordan was a Coro Fellow in Public Affairs in New York City. Through Coro, she learned key frameworks in leadership development and explored cross-sector approaches to promoting equity. During her fellowship, she worked on projects with a range of institutions including the New York City Department of Education, the Fresh Air Fund, and Propel Capital.
Previously, Jordan worked in Brooklyn as the development and communications manager at the Arab-American Family Support Center (AAFSC), a nonprofit organization providing wrap-around social services to immigrant youth and families. At AAFSC, Jordan diversified the organization’s funding streams, nearly doubling their net assets, and supported youth-led social justice initiatives. Working with students and families at AAFSC inspired her to pursue work focused on supporting youth and schools.
In Brooklyn, she also served as an Education Pioneers Fellow on the operations team at Brooklyn East Collegiate, a school within the Uncommon Schools network.
Jordan holds a bachelor’s degree in liberal arts, History, and Arabic from The University of Texas at Austin. While at UT, she was a mentor at KIPP Austin College Prep. Throughout college, she studied in Morocco, Jordan and Israel, and wrote her senior thesis on contemporary art in the Middle East.
Jordan is a graduate of Austin ISD schools. She loves to spend time with her family, especially her young niece and nephews, and loves spending a full day in a library, especially the new Austin Public Library.
