Foundation welcomes Meyer, Parker to advisory board

The Clayton County Foundation for the Future is pleased to welcome Osterdock resident Jordan Meyer and Garber resident Nicole Parker to its advisory board. 

This winter, board member Andy Reimer retired from the board after more than a decade of service. Reimer served as board chair and will continue to support Foundation initiatives in an advisory role. 

Parker joins the board with experience serving on the boards of Kids Kampus in Guttenberg and St. John’s Church in Garber. She has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Northern Iowa in finance and real estate and works as a customer service representative and insurance agent at Community Insurance of Iowa. 

“I am very excited for this new opportunity to help our communities thrive,” she says. “The Foundation is a great way to help organizations in the county provide much-needed services and opportunities to all ages. I look forward to helping and learning more about area organizations, and to making this a great place to work, live and visit for all generations, now and in the future.”

Parker lives on a farm between Garber and Guttenberg with her husband of 10 years, Jordon, and their children, Jace, Madilyn and Riley. “I have lived in Clayton County my whole life and can't think of a better place to raise a family,” she says. In her spare time, Parker enjoys reading, horseback riding, boating on the river, and other outdoor adventures. 

Osterdock native Meyer owns Garnavillo Chiropractic. He serves as the vice president of the Foundation of Cornerstone Communities, a fund held by the Clayton County Foundation for the Future. 

“I think that experience as well as what I do for a living will be beneficial in serving on this board, because I see people from all walks of life on a daily basis. It helps me stay in tune with some of the needs and experiences in our county,” he says. “I’m looking forward to helping out on a county level and meeting new people.”

Meyer has lived most of his life in Osterdock. He enjoys following the Green Bay Packers, participating in fantasy football, and adding to his multi-genre collection of vinyl records. 

“Our new board members are committed community members with a good understanding of wide-ranging community needs,” says Haleisa Johnson, Foundation co-chair. “We are thrilled to welcome them and leverage their knowledge in our efforts to improve quality of life in Clayton County.”
