Get to Know Jordana
Besides being with your family, what do you do when you are not busy being a lawyer?
I serve on a couple Boards of Directors and committees on which I seek to increase community engagement on issues of poverty.
Is there a charitable cause you feel passionate about? If yes, what is the charity and why?
The Cathedral Center, a nondenominational shelter that also seeks to provide a path to secure housing for Milwaukee families. This is a solid organization that effectively serves its purpose, and you can meet some adorable children there while you help.
What is the best concert you’ve attended, ever, and what made it the best?
I’m going to choose a 90’s “mash up” concert because it was a lovely night with my spouse and because I am stuck in the 90’s.
