My Biography 

Jordan Davis is a Project Coordinator for Inclusive Practices at the Center for New Designs in Learning and Scholarship at Georgetown University, and is a Professional Speaker and Founder of JD Speaks. At Georgetown, he designs programs for student wellbeing and builds strategies for infusing these programs into the college curriculum.

 

When Jordan isn't working at the Car Barn in NW Washington, DC, he can often be facilitating for students, professionals, or both simultaneously! As a professional public speaker for nearly 5 years at just 22 years old, Jordan addresses three main topics: justice and equity in education (K-16), mental wellbeing, and professional development for students and working adults, In the span of two years, he transformed from a C' and D' student as a 16-year-old to being recognized as the most outstanding student in his high school graduating class. It was at that moment that he decided to give back to his school community by speaking to incoming high school students who needed guidance. He continued his public speaking at McDaniel College, where JD Speaks was founded and his Bachelor's degree in Communication was conferred. 

 At Georgetown University, Jordan is also actively pursuing his Master's degree in Learning, Design, & Technology, where he's honing his skills in higher education leadership, education technology development, and education policy reform. As a Black, male, first-generation college student who battled anxiety for years, he identifies with and advocates for marginalized peoples. He's driven to not only help people overcome personal, academic, and professional challenges to achieve success today, but he's just as inspired to implement teaching, policy, and leadership practices at scale that would allow for the continued success of all developing adults in the future.
