Evoke is pleased to announce Jordan Machtelinckx, as the new Director of Operations at their Cascades location in Bend, Oregon. Jordan worked for 2 years as a Field Staff at Evoke Cascades before returning to his new position.
Jordan is responsible for all things logistical in the field, at base, and everywhere in between. In the field, he ensures groups have the gear and equipment needed for changing conditions and ensures compliance with land use regulations. Back at base, he supervises the logistics team, the warehouse, and management of the vehicle fleet. He also organizes and supervises all transportation for staff, participants, and families to and from the field area.
When asked about returning to Evoke, Jordan said "I’m excited to return to Evoke in a management role to be able to support the field staff who are at the front lines of what we do to support families. I felt my time as a field instructor come to a natural close after two intense years, and moved on to a seasonal dream job working as a glacier guide in Alaska. While the work there was equally intense and rewarding, I noticed an absence of the deep fulfillment which I felt while supporting participants through their journey in wilderness therapy. As it turns out, a field instructor position in wilderness therapy is a very tough job to follow up. My understanding of the inner workings of Evoke, combined with my diverse experience in logistics and my desire to support the industry pieced together nicely when I had the opportunity to return to Evoke as the head of the operations department."
