Jordan WagnerExecutive Director
A born entrepreneur, raised in Los Angeles, Jordan has been starting businesses since age 14.

Landry DoyleOperations Manager
Although Landry hails from small town Missouri, she has always had a heart for global problem solving. As a student at the University of Southern California, Landry devoted her career to understanding complex global issues—taking her from the streets of Beirut, to Santiago, and eventually to Generosity Water’s doorstep. Landry now manages our international partnerships and shapes our projects to uphold the highest standards in WASH development. When she’s not getting excited about sanitation training, you’ll find her listening to NPR, mocking Bec’s accent, or whipping up a smoothie.

Jake is a natural storyteller. Add a camera to the mix, and you’ve got yourself a full-blown documentarian. He began telling stories through a lens in 2004 when he traveled to Africa to capture the civil war in Ivory Coast. After his doc won a national film festival, he decided to continue honing his craft at the Art Center College of Design. He has traveled to over 25 countries creating award winning short films, and is currently in pre-production on a feature length documentary titled The Human Movement. He also has the gift of attracting eagles with his bird call. No joke.
Anna LindtjornOperations Associate
From a family dedicated to health efforts in eastern Africa, Anna has always been interested in development. Born in Norway, she moved with her family around the world, and her passion for people only grew as she was immersed in cultures on three different continents.

Now she runs our social media and assists in all things operations. We love Anna for her honesty, accent, and adaptability—no task is beneath this fiery Euro-Ethiopian-Angeleno.
