Jordan’s team member spotlight was published to celebrate Social Wellness Month.
What’s your job title and how long have you worked at CBM?
I am a partner and director of divorce and litigation services.
What’s the most exciting part of your job?
Working on project and engagements that do not have a set framework. I enjoy developing approaches and solutions to non-standard problems!
What advice would you give to someone who is interested in improving their social wellness?
One must have a general sense of intrigue, curiosity and interest in projects, people, business, etc. in order to truly learn about oneself and in turn learn more about others. Also, learning when to say yes and no is paramount. We may not always have the ability to say no, but one should focus beyond the simple words themselves. Say yes to opportunities which fulfill your goals, say no to things which may not be enriching.
What opportunities has CBM had within the firm that allows you to be socially active?
CBM provides members the opportunity to be themselves and take initiative to develop a plan for where they would like to go into the future. In a remote and hybrid work world CBM provides activities that provide for social interaction, a flexible schedule to allow times for hobbies, and an environment that surrounds each member with other GREAT ones.
Do you have any advice for people looking to enter accounting or work at CBM?
The biggest attribute to a successful career in accounting is passion for the work. Most people believe accounting is strictly math and numbers but there is much more to the field and industry! The world of accounting is a most exciting one! Being passionate means you are eager to develop skills, solve new problems and develop meaningful relationships. As you continue on your journey in accounting, it is helpful to fine tune one’s focus and specialize in an area that truly intrigues them.
What are some interesting hobbies or talents most people may not know about you?
I enjoy restoring, modifying and semi-professionally racing vehicles in my spare time and interacting with the community surrounding them. I participate in on-road (autocross) and off-road racing events. I have played tennis for almost 30 years and have developed a new found passion for Pickleball (and won several recent tournaments).
What does Social Wellness Month mean to you?
Social Wellness Month is a time to re-focus on what is important (and not important) to me and revisit how I might further nurture relationships with others and myself. It is a meaningful time to revisit a routine and see what works, what does not and how I can improve it.
