CCHS Grad - Making Magic at Disneyland

Where are they now? Jordyn Crowley Watts
CCHS Grad - Making Magic at Disneyland

She starred as numerous Disney princesses in Fallon productions. Now she works at Disneyland Resort.

Jordyn Crowley Watts graduated from Churchill County High School in 2013. With the goal of being on Broadway, she attended Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah to study music, dance, and theater. During her studies, Jordyn pivoted her passion into public relations and marketing after undergoing several major hip surgeries. Now, she works for The Walt Disney Company in internal communications.

“I was so blessed by Churchill County’s commitment to the arts,” Jordyn said. “I was impressed with our high quality community theater productions and nationally competitive dance and choir groups.”

While in high school, Jordyn was known for her acting, singing, and dancing capabilities. She starred as Belle and Cinderella, was a member of Minor Details - a competitive choir - and ballroom danced on the Fallon Swing team. Jordyn also helped start Bleed Green News as a participant in video production, and participated in a number of advanced placement (AP) courses including her favorite: AP Physics with Mrs. Strasdin.

“Mrs. Strasdin brought science to life in a way that I have never previously seen or expected,” Jordyn said. “She awakened a passion within myself that I otherwise would have not known I had.”

During college and after her hip surgeries, Jordyn realized her dream of working for Disney could be realized by developing professional skills and obtaining lots of work experience. She landed gigs on television and became a spokesperson for a national brand.

"For years I was trying to build my resume so I could have a shot at Disney," said Jordyn. "I was always asking myself 'what do I still need to learn?' so I could be a competitive candidate one day."

After earning professional experience in Utah, Jordyn moved to Los Angeles to try and land a role at Disney. Early on, she was told by recruiters that some Disney job openings could receive as many as 30,000 applicants. This statistic was overwhelming but did not discourage Jordyn from her dream.

After six months of being unemployed – and working as a birthday party princess on the side – and 52 applications, Jordyn was offered a job by The Walt Disney Company on their internal communications team.

“It truly was a dream come true,” Jordyn said. “Although I'm not going to be a Disney princess like I used to joke about, I'm still going to make meaningful contributions and help make magic!"

As a member of the internal communications team for the Disneyland Resort, Jordyn communicates with all employees - or cast members in Disney speak - about happenings including special staff events and resort policies like those relating to COVID-19.

“I help bring magic to cast members' lives so they can more easily share magic with our guests,” Jordyn said.

When asked about what advice she has for high school students, Jordyn encouraged students ​​to pursue their hobbies and passions to the fullest right now. She hopes students discover what they like and do not limit themselves to interests based on their prospective skillsets.

“If I didn’t care so much about how good I was at activities or how others viewed me, I wouldn’t have limited myself as much,” said Jordyn. “The person you are is much more important than the person people think you are.”

When asked if she would like to thank anyone publicly, Jordyn shared gratitude for her supportive parents and “one of her most impactful teachers” Mr. Fleming.

“He told me to my face, you can do it,” Jordyn said. “That advice has resonated and stuck with me, especially during the years I did not think I was capable.”

Jordyn’s parents Martin and Adonna Crowley live in Fallon with their dog, horses and goats. Jordyn’s younger brother Justice, a 2016 graduate of CCHS, currently serves in the Nevada National Guard.

LEAD On produces "Where Are They Now" features in a partnership with The Fallon Post along with short video interviews. The mission of LEAD On is to help prepare youth in Churchill County for life after high school.

Not only is Jordyn gorgeous and intelligent, but she is one of the most genuinely nice people I have ever met. People gravitate to be around her. Oh, and she also has good taste in shoes!
