Jorden, Tricia

Associate Director of College Counseling

It has been a joy to be part of the Porter’s community since 2011, serving as a college counselor, with some time in the admissions office as well. I’ve had the privilege of helping girls come to Porter’s and then prepare them as they move on to new adventures upon graduation. My own academic path included a bachelor’s degree in political science and a master’s degree in public health. Professionally, I drew on that passion for political science at The Washington Post and went on to positions in health care policy and academic administration at Johns Hopkins University and Georgetown University. My favorite work has centered on helping talented students investigate and plan for their own next steps. And most of all I enjoy when Ancients keep in touch to share their successes with us. At home, I live in Simsbury with my husband and two daughters.
