Jackie Jordan Welker

Senior director, marketing and communications,
Make-A-Wish Eastern North Carolina

 
At Make-A-Wish, Welker leads storytelling efforts on all media platforms to share the stories of wishes granted for children with critical illnesses in the 49 counties of Eastern North Carolina. Welker said she uses technology all the time in her role.
 
“The storytelling aspect of my work has me on social media, email programs, website design, video production, etc. every day. Our organization uses Microsoft Teams to communicate locally and nationwide.”
 
Favorite websites and blogs she regularly checks include social media where she follows lots of different news outlets and bloggers. Her favorite account right now is Kobe Eats, @kobe_yn on Instagram.
 
“He’s a kid chef and just the cutest! He’s my break from the heaviness of the world,” she said.
 
One favorite podcast is SmartLess. “Jason Bateman, Will Arnett and Sean Hayes are just so fun to listen to and they have a wide variety of guests,” she said.
 
For TV, current shows include Ozark, The Handmaid’s Tale, Younger, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and she always rewatches Schitt’s Creek or The Office.
 
Her favorite movie of all time is Back to the Future. “I have a decent collection of memorabilia from that series and, hey, ‘Your future is whatever you make it, so make it a good one.’”
