Sandra Kilpatrick Jordan

Our local business spotlight is always proud to share the many talents and expertise of our local area from  Himalayan tours to candle makers. Today we are incredibly excited to introduce Sandra Kilpatrick Jordan. Sandra worked at Sesame Workshop for 12 years as an executive producer of non-broadcast educational programs.  She spent 2 years as a federal grant maker at the National Girl Scouts of the USA which she describes as an amazing experience! Sandra followed this with another 8 years in public affairs and government relations for the international trade association for the music products industry (NAMM) and grant maker for their foundation.

 This employment resume is incredibly impressive in itself, but the work that Sandra does for these organizations is even more exciting.  An independent consultant since 2010, she works with business and nonprofit clients in various parts of the U.S. and overseas. Sandra describes her work as strategic planning and communications, along with program and partner development in education and the arts. She has been labeled a “trim tab” by one of her mentors, a definition she agrees with for herself and her work.  This term is primarily used to describe a small part on boats that gives better control and improved performance with just minor adjustments. Sandra fits this description by recognizing the future implications of small, high-leverage actions that can help to guide an organization in a right, new direction. She helps busy business and nonprofit leaders accelerate their social impact by

  • supporting them to plan, brand and communicate more effectively
  • producing new collateral materials
  • developing partnerships and programs


Sandra brings a wealth of bold and innovative services to organizations including writing strategic plans and annual reports, introducing new products or services, crafting new content for any medium, and spearheading or re-evaluating an education, public affairs or community outreach program.  This list does not exhaust her capabilities and Sandra’s customer testimonials and completed projects speak volumes to the work that she does and the quality she brings.
