Ayanna Jordan is founder and principal consultant for The Phoenix Rising Collective. She is a certified personal coach facilitating dynamic women-centered self-care workshops that focus on how daily, practical actions can cultivate self-love and transform your life. Ayanna also develops one-on-one and group coaching programs that empower personal and professional growth. Her interactive, holistic approach creates a non-judgmental, compassionate, and supportive space for women to truly explore and affirm who they are, what they want, and how they want to do it.
She has always had a passion for inspiring others, and for most of her career has worked in education and non-profit sectors fulfilling her strong commitment to work in meaningful and purpose-filled positions that make a difference. From being the director of a college access program to teaching as a resident artist for one of southeast Ohio’s premiere art centers, she has always used her work to level the playing field – addressing equal educational access for first-generation college students to supporting women by developing quality resources helpful to sparking personal growth and igniting real transformational change. “I believe a change agent is someone who is in alignment with what she loves to do, and then connects, utilizes, and shares that love to make a difference and transform lives.”
Following the Inner Voice
Ready to move forward and let intuition be her guide, Ayanna took her love for empowering women to the next level, and diligently worked to bring The PRC to fruition, cultivating its success since January 2012. In fact, she wholeheartedly knows that helping women lead more intentional lives is her purpose.
Her vision to create this community came out of the realization that most resources related to self-care and wellness lacked diverse representation of women of color. “I want to share and inform from a perspective that includes us, that shows that we’re also doing this work – and have been for a long time. All women need to see a reflection of themselves. It’s a powerful motivator, sparking the thought, ‘Hey, maybe I can do this, too.'”
Work as Love Made Visible
The Phoenix Rising Collective is one of Ayanna’s grandest loves made visible and also her greatest healer. Coaching women on making daily self-care a practice in their personal and professional lives keeps her in alignment to do the same. She is excited to continue making meaningful, heartfelt connections through The PRC’s thriving community.
