Jordan Burner

Graduate and Professional Studies Enrollment Counselor
Mission Valley

I was born and raised in Knoxville, Tennessee and am a southern belle through and through. I went to the University of Tennessee for undergrad and am a diehard Vols fan — Go Big Orange! I love being adventurous, traveling, and experiencing new things. After moving to San Diego, I worked in enrollment services at another institution before being blessed enough to work at PLNU.

I am a first-generation college graduate, which leads me to be extremely passionate about helping others accomplish their educational goals. Additionally, my mom is a nurse, so being able to work with nursing students in particular is genuinely an honor. Nurses have a very special place in my heart and I believe so much in the work they do.

Fun Fact 

I have lived in three countries other than the U.S. and I want to see as much of the world as I can.
