Name: Danya M. Jordan
Job title: Director of Major Gifts
Employed by: Roper St. Francis Foundation
What I like most about my job: Building relationships with our grateful patients, hearing their amazing stories and being inspired by the passionate physicians and staff of Roper St. Francis Healthcare. As a fundraiser and friend-raiser, we really are “blessings brokers.”
As Sponsorships Chair, my goal this year is to: Raise at least $20,000 for AFP’s programs and services. Have fun with the awesome board and those we serve.
I'm originally from: Charleston (born in the former St. Francis Hospital)
My hobbies include: Laughing with friends; enjoying the outdoors--especially kayaking, biking, hiking, gardening (love flowers); strolling at Middleton Place or downtown; road trips to Blowing Rock, NC; writing; reading--and I love to dance!
Something my AFP colleagues might not know about me is: I like to retreat some weekends to Mepkin Abbey to write, read, and get quiet, which is not easy for me.
If I had one week to do anything I wanted, I would: Explore Italy; spend the week rocking on my porch and resting in Blowing Rock, NC; or spend the week at Greyfield Inn relaxing and exploring on Cumberland Island, GA. (I’ve always wanted to go there.)
