Community Spotlight: Meet Your New Lifestyle Director!
If you’ve spent any time around the Community House or at one of our recent events, you’ve likely seen Jordan Keene… our new Lifestyle Director! We caught up with Jordan to learn a little more about her and what she loves about working here at MillBridge:
Tell us a little about yourself… what brought you to MillBridge?
I was born and raised here in the Charlotte area and graduated from Weddington High School. I then went to Tusculum University on a softball scholarship. After attending there for two years, I transferred to the University of North Carolina at Charlotte where I graduated from this month. I began working at MillBridge as a barista during my summers off after my freshman year of college!
Describe what you do as Lifestyle Director.
As the Lifestyle Director, my role is to organize, implement, and manage programs and activities for community residents. I also develop a schedule full of events and programs which encourage resident socialization, improve daily living skills, expand personal interests, increase physical activity and promote lifelong learning!
What’s your favorite thing about the MillBridge community?
What I love most about the MillBridge community is all the people I have come to know and love here. Working as a barista, I really got to know most of the residents (especially our “regulars”). Although the community is big, the Community House and all the events we hold really help bring people together and make us one big family.
What’s your favorite thing about Waxhaw?
My favorite thing about Waxhaw is Downtown. It has such a historic southern feel to it! I grew up going there for many holiday parades, and I also love all the cute shops and restaurants it has!
What upcoming MillBridge event are you most looking forward to?
The upcoming MillBridge event that I am most looking forward to is the Luau. Everyone comes out to the community pool and there are hula dancers, steel drum players, decorations and a of bunch delicious food!
