Jordann has worked in many areas of an orthodontic practice but found her “home” mastering the start-up processes with Jill. During the build-out stage of your consulting contract, Jordann will walk you through the details and directives for each month, making sure that every “i” is dotted, and every “t” is crossed before your practice doors open. In addition to ensuring a nearly effortless build-out process, Jordann is also responsible for all of the marketing, seminar and event planning, and building of the back-end systems that keep team JA&A running like a well-oiled machine. Around the team at Jill Allen & Associates, Jessi and Jordann are often referred to as balloon holders because they keep their lovely leader Jill from floating away in all the big ideas of an ever-evolving business.
Bonus Fun Fact: Jordann is Jill’s daughter!
A note from Jordann:
If you have spent any time with me, you know that I am obsessed with the pursuit of knowledge and psychology is my vice. I can often be quoted saying, “I watched a documentary on that!” or found in deep philosophical conversations about the ways of the world. When I am not nose-deep in a good book (well actually, ear deep, since I listen to all of my books on Audible), I like to spend time outdoors, at a hot yoga class or with my wonderful husband Kyle and our two dogs Raleigh and Ruger; which I am also obsessed with. If you don’t already think I am a little quirky… Ask me about my addiction to TV binge sessions. Can you say Netflix Junkie?
Introducing balloon holder numero dos! Jessi is a wealth of wisdom when it comes to all things JA&A (mostly because she manages all of our current content and protocol updates). She has a way with words and an ability to communicate that helps her to form lasting relationships with everyone she encounters. Jessi is a master team trainer and HR manager for the employees here at JA&A. Between helping our consultants manage their clients and the creation, updating, endless proof-reading, and structuring of or our consulting content, we keep her on her toes! Let’s just say we would be lost with her elocution and leadership capabilities. Swoon.
A note from Jessi:
If you were to ask my friends and family, they might tell you I am a little crunchy. I care deeply about the planet and our environment because much like Jill, my heart is in the trees. I love to camp, hike, ride ATV’s, throw tomahawks… yes you read that right, and take every opportunity to soak up the fresh mountain air. My husband Kyle is my rock, and I would be lost without my fur baby Rado (or Mama’s Babies Puppies if you were to ask him). You could say school is my hobby because when I am not taking a class I spend all of my free time doing research and writing about things that pique my interest.
That’s right, we have another "J" on the team! Jenn has been in the ortho world for over 18 years and has experience in most positions within a practice. Although she will always have special place in her heart for the clinic, Jenn’s vast orthodontic knowledge base helps teams run expertly, without ever breaking a sweat in the heat of a busy practice schedule. As a Jill Allen & Associates practice operations consultant, Jenn is trained in the JA&A secrets of success and will work diligently to show your practice “the light”. She eats, breathes, and dreams about efficiency in all areas of an orthodontic office, but her compassion and kind-hearted nature will help make periods of transition with your team a breeze.
If your ever up for a challenge, Jenn is always up for a head to head wire change contest! Think you can beat her?
A note from Jenn:
If my team were to describe me, they would say, I am one-part country, one-part tomboy, three-parts heart, and three-parts sass! In a way, I can relate to the Grinch, but not because I am green and grumpy… I know what you were thinking! Instead of my heart being three sizes too small… my friends would tell me it is three sizes too big. My life is kind of like a romantic comedy because I married the boy next door… seriously… husband Matt was my neighbor for my entire adolescent life! We now have two young (hilarious) boys; Chance and Brody. When not at home you will find us at a rodeo, in the Colorado mountains, and always looking for ways to be in the close proximity of a superhero.
Courtney is another Jill Allen & Associates team member with over 19 years of orthodontic experience. During her orthodontic tenure, she has worked in all positions within a practice but gets especially warm and fuzzy inside when it comes to the treatment coordinating and practice marketing roles. As a consultant with Jill Allen & Associates, Courtney will go the extra mile to ensure your practice has the systems and protocols in place now, to perpetuate growth in the future. Her calm demeanor and big smile make even the toughest changes easy to handle as she works alongside you and your team.
A note from Courtney:
If you were to sum up my personality in a single phrase, I think “work hard/play hard” would suffice. I am a lover of adventure, and am always up for new experiences, but I am also a hard worker that loves the feeling of a job well done. My husband and I have three amazing daughters, that would tell you I am a bit of a sports fanatic. When I am not on the sidelines watching them play basketball or softball (I may or may not be that mom…hehe), you will catch me cheering for the bears. I love to spend time with my husband, my girls, and of course my sweet St. Bernard and am always looking for new ways to push my husband out of his comfort zone. If you want a good giggle, ask me about the rafting trip I planned for us.
