Before joining Garden Media, Cole was edited and oversaw the production of 25 monthly community magazines. She managed a team of writers and interfaced with community leaders across the country.
While studying at Penn State University, Cole wrote and edited for The Daily Collegian. She received both the national and regional Mark of Excellence Awards for editorial writing by the Society of Professional Journalists.
“Jourdan is an incredibly gifted writer and editor with a strong work ethic. Having someone with impeccable writing, editing and organizational skills strengthens our team.” explains Susan McCoy, president and founder of Garden Media.
Cole graduated from Penn State with a triple major in international politics, criminal justice and sociology. While working on her studies and the newspaper, she found time to be a service volunteer and student mentor.
“The transition from journalism to PR just feels natural, and I’m eager to face new challenges and opportunities in public relations,” Cole says. “I’m excited about working for such an environmentally conscious organization where everyone cares about the clients.”
If past history means anything, McCoy says Cole will show clients exactly why Garden Media wanted her to be part of the team. “For a young professional, Jourdan has proved that she belongs at the top of the class, and I can’t wait for our clients to see the kind of magic she can work for them.”
