Jordan Ryan

Jordan loves spending time with family. When she’s not at work with her TDP family, she’s hanging around Springfield with her amazing wife and their two brindle pups, trying every new restaurant with her mom, visiting her brother in Oklahoma or her 28-years-younger sister in DC, her dad’s family in Chicago, her in-laws in Bolivar, MO, or her mom’s family in Arkansas. Jordan also stays busy by reading, watching movies, kayaking, and managing inventory for her pop-up shop Pickwick Papery in the Rountree neighborhood of Springfield.

More About Jordan

When Jordan first interviewed with TDP her role didn’t even exist, but she’s not the type to let that stop her! Our first Project Coordinator, Jordan brought her 10 years of progressive experience in Retail Business Development and her arsenal of organizational skills to establish our Development Services Department. A relational leader and positive influencer, she is able to effectively connect and engage with municipal officials all over the nation to permit even the most complicated of projects. She enjoys making moves that impact the big picture while maintaining the integrity of the details and handles high-pressure problems with a solutions-oriented approach. It is because of these skills and more that she was recognized with the TDP “Star of the Year” award after 6 months of employment. Jordan continues to look for ways to grow herself, her team, and TDP – whether that’s through leading internal committees, onboarding new hires, organizing monthly TDP events, cross-training on new software, or volunteering to help her co-workers during heavy workload weeks. Though Jordan is very proud of all projects for which she leads permitting, she is most proud of her work as one-half of the well-oiled Dollar General team.
