Jordan is the newest member of the Phoenix Team.
Jordan joined Phoenix Health and Wellbeing in February and is trained in sports and deep tissue massage. We thought it would be good to get to know Jordan more so Rachel, our Office Manager, interviewed him for the Phoenix blog.
RM: So Jordan, where are you from?
JHA: I’m originally from the West Midlands and I’ve worked hard to lose the accent. It comes out occasionally though.
RM: I can’t really hear your accent at all! How did a West Midlands boy end up in Leeds then?
JHA: I moved to Huddersfield for University where I studied music technology and popular music. My fiancée, Lucy, studied at Leeds so Leeds has become our adopted home. We’ve lived here for the last 7 years and we love it.
RM: You’re engaged!!?
JHA: Yep. I’ve been engaged to Lucy for over 6 years (yes we’re that couple)
RM: Congratulations! If you started out studying a music degree how come you’re now a sports therapist?
JHA: Growing up I played a lot of sport. Rugby mainly. When I started competing and playing for the Staffordshire county team I used sports massage more and more to improve my performance and to aid injury recovery.
I have always been interested in becoming a therapist and two years ago I finally decided to take the plunge and head back to college.
RM: How are you finding being at Phoenix so far? Answer truthfully!
JHA: I’m really enjoying the work. I love trying to help people either achieve their goal or just help relieve aches and pains. It has been awesome and I can’t wait to meet more people.
RM: Great! So last question, can you tell us an interesting fact about yourself?
JHA: A couple of years ago I started a board game business with my friend and last year we successfully funded our first game on Kickstarter.
