After teaching English on Riker’s Island for three years and witnessing the traumatic effects of adult jail on youth, Jordyn came up with the concept of Drive Change, a food truck social enterprise that hires, trains and empowers formerly incarcerated youth. From 2012 – 2014, Jordyn worked for many notable re-entry/criminal justice organizations to plan for Drive Change and she simultaneously worked on the Kimchi Taco Truck to learn the food truck business. In the spring of 2014, Drive Change hired it’s first class of young people and opened Snowday a maple syrup themed food truck that is locally sourced with 100% NY State product; making Snowday the first farm-to-truck food truck in NYC. Snowday just won Rookie of the Year at the 2014 Vendy Awards – a huge triumph for that is a reflection of the whole team’s dedication to their craft and mission. Jordyn holds a BA in English from Wesleyan University and a MA in Teaching from Pace University.
