Jordann is the type of person you can listen to and in the first 5 minutes you are inspired. I enjoyed speaking with her because her determination and passion for all things paleo is so encouraging.

  • “We’re not doing it the normal way.”
  • “The rules are not necessarily in stone.”
  • “I’ve had to learn that my age is not a limiting factor.”
