Forefront Living (FL) is pleased to introduce Kristen Jordan as the newly appointed Executive Director of The Outlook at Windhaven (OAW), a FL senior living community currently under construction in Plano, Texas, with plans to open its doors to residents in 2024.
Kristen’s professional journey began in the hotel and hospitality industry in 1996, where she gained valuable expertise over the years. In 2020, she transitioned professionally into the senior living sector, bringing with her an impressive track record of leadership and hospitality experience in sales and marketing spanning more than 25 years.
Her remarkable service industry background includes accomplishments such as successfully opening five hotels and earning prestigious accolades such as the Hospitality Impact Award in 2013, Sales Director of the Year in 2011 and the President’s Award in 2008. Kristen holds certifications from the Texas Assisted Living Association in Texas Assisted Living Standards and Assisted Living Management. Before joining the FL family, Kristen served as Executive Director at The Village of River Oaks, a luxury senior living community located in Houston, Texas.
Kristen expressed her enthusiasm for her new role stating, “I am incredibly proud to be joining the OAW team as Executive Director. I look forward to helping lead the community to a successful opening while building strong and heartfelt relationships with our residents, their families and my teammates.”
Kristen and her husband, Bill, recently made the move from Houston to Dallas. Kristen has called many places home including Ohio, as well as Venezuela, Virginia, Nevada, Florida and New York. She is the proud mom of two daughters, Melissa (age 29) and Angelica (age 28). Her family is completed by two beloved dogs, Brownie, a Chocolate Labrador, and Dallas, a Plott Hound mix.
During her free time, Kristen enjoys watching movies, cycling, playing pickleball and volunteering with the Mile High Labrador Retriever Mission. This organization rescues Labrador Retrievers and relocates them to new loving homes in Colorado, a cause close to Kristen’s heart.
