About Dr. J

Erica Jordan, Ph.D., CFLE

Welcome! I am glad you are here!


I'm a university faculty member in a Human Development and Family Sciences (HDFS) program. I love my field of work, even if some days are harder than others. I love finding creative ways to engage my students, sharing information with others that can help improve their lives, and empowering students to critically question and to become lifelong learners.

I created this site to help all HDFS students and students in similar fields prepare for work that is focused on people and families. The views on this blog and website are entirely my own, based on my own experiences and opinions. They do not necessarily reflect the opinions of my current or former workplaces. Also, I make no guarantees about the outcomes of taking advice on this website. It is simply my opinion, and everyone has to make their own choices that are best for them.

Feel free to connect with me on social media. I hope you enjoy exploring your future possibilities!

"It's your life--but only if you make it so.

The standards by which you life must be your own standards, your own values, your own convictions in regard to what is right and wrong, what is true and false, what is important and what is trivial."


~Eleanor Roosevelt

Suggestions, Feedback, & Questions

If you have a question or idea for a blog post, please send it to me. If you have recommendations for HDFS or other family science alumni to interview, please reach out to me here. I am interested in hearing a variety of stories (both inside and outside of "the field" of HDFS). If you liked this podcast and want other people to be able to find it, please rate and review it in iTunes or share it on social media.

Success! Message received.
