  • Financial Specialist - Graduate Programs

Jordan Mikkelsen enjoys her role as Graduate Financial Specialist where she helps students determine a plan to pay for their education to earn their degree.

Hailing from Atlantic, Iowa, Jordan attended Iowa State University in Ames, where she served as a teaching assistant for a beginner-level equine handling course and earned bachelor’s degrees in animal science and animal ecology. She previously worked as an animal caretaker, veterinary assistant, and postal clerk before becoming Project Coordinator for Buena Vista University’s Extended University Programs, a position she held for two years before becoming the Graduate Financial Specialist.

“I enjoy helping students determine a financial plan so they can not only achieve their goals but make their academic dreams a reality,” says Jordan.

Jordan lives with her husband on an acreage in rural Storm Lake. Outside of work, she enjoys hunting, fishing, horseback riding, reading, spending time with family and friends, and playing with her dogs and other animals.
