Jordan Morgan & KT Maviglia-Morgan

CEO & COO

A master at juggling on-court success with off-court life, Jordan Morgan has two degrees from The University of Michigan’s College of Engineering to go with his decorated career on the basketball court. Growing up, Jordan traveled the US often with his family, especially for family vacations and sports tournaments. More recently, Jordan’s professional basketball career has taken him to 7 teams in 6 countries in the last 7 years. Now a dual-citizen with 42 countries and counting under his belt, Jordan is grateful for the unique perspective he’s gained through seeing the world for himself.

Your typical "small town girl with big city dreams”, KT Maviglia-Morgan hails from Dundee, MI. Originally born in Sault Ste. Marie in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula (Yep, she’s a Yooper), KT went on to graduate from the University of Michigan. After receiving her degree, KT won the Miss Michigan Scholarship Pageant and had the unique opportunity to grace the Miss America stage. As an accomplished public speaker, KT loves to talk! Over the last four years, KT has traveled the US as a narrator for Alfa Romeo. Life with her husband, Jordan Morgan, has been nothing short of an adventure and has taken her to 16 countries and counting.
