Syracuse, NY, January 6, 2015, Mark J. Jordan, Ed.D, Chief Executive Officer of visibow consulting, LLC, has been recognized by Elite American Educators for dedication, achievement and leadership in educational consulting.
Dr. Jordan founded visibow consulting, LLC, to help invoke social change by advocating for LGBT youth. After beginning his career as a chemist, Dr. Jordan yearned to teach, and subsequently received a teaching certificate and began teaching chemistry in high school. Due to budget cuts, however, he lost his job, which he saw as an opportunity to create visibow consulting, LLC. The educational consultancy promotes resilience in sexual minorities to keep them safe, healthy and motivated to achieve excellence, in addition to providing educational opportunities across various contextual settings, including the K-12 school systems, institutions of higher education and community organizations.
The highlight of Dr. Jordan’s career thus far has been the founding of his educational consulting business; it is his first time being an independent business owner, and it marks the beginning of a new chapter in his career endeavors. He attributes his ongoing success to his ability to maintain a balance between where he is and where he wants to be. Dr. Jordan feels that this equilibrium must resonate on three levels: mind, body and spirit. In five years, he plans to work on the college and university levels in the areas of social justice, advocacy, sociology and the humanities.
In addition to working with visibow consulting, LLC, Dr. Jordan dedicates a significant amount of time to pursuing ongoing education, and earned a Doctorate in Educational Leadership from Fielding Graduate University in 2015. His doctoral dissertation, “A Phenomenological Study of Risk and Resilience: LGB Youths’ Perceptions of Homophobia and Their Resilience,” was recently published in Fielding Graduate University’s Fielding Monograph Series, Volume 6, titled “Leadership for Social Change: A Cultural Perspective.” Dr. Jordan’s dissertation was also nominated for the 2015 Carnegie Project on the Education Doctorate Dissertation in Practice Award.
