Senior Account Manager
Kristiana Jordan is a communications strategist who connects the dots across issue areas and perspectives to fight for a truly just world. While studying American history, society, and culture in college, she realized the importance of taking an interdisciplinary and people-focused approach to the world. She brings that lens to her work and is deeply invested in building a world that affords safety, self-determination, and freedom for everyone.
Kristiana’s portfolio focuses largely on racial justice, civil rights, and technology - and the many places where those fields overlap. She develops strategies that leverage her clients strengths and unique perspectives. On her accounts, she provides media relations, campaign research, and messaging support to clients working on issues ranging from privacy and surveillance to discrimination against Black hair.
Before joining Spitfire, Kristiana got a firsthand look at state policymaking while interning at the Massachusetts Senate. There, she focused on stakeholder engagement and translated legal jargon into plain English for bill summaries. Previously, Kristiana interned at the ACLU of Massachusetts, where she wrote blog posts and conducted policy analyses to support local racial justice campaigns.
Kristiana was born and raised in the DMV. She graduated from Tufts University in Massachusetts with a Bachelor of Arts in American studies in May 2017 before returning to D.C. to escape those brutal winters. At Tufts, she was a devoted member of Essence, Tufts’ only all-female, a cappella group celebrating music of the African diaspora. Her love of music lives on, and she’s often found singing while attending various concerts and shows in D.C.
