Jordan was born and raised in Plymouth, Michigan. Admittedly, she is a huge fan of Detroit sports teams. She studied athletic training at Albion College, and graduated with a conference championship ring as a defender on the women’s lacrosse team. After college, she went on to accept a graduate assistant athletic training position at Auburn University. While at Auburn, Jordan served as an athletic trainer for Auburn’s Army, Air Force, Navy, and Marine ROTC branches. As a very traditional athletic trainer, sworn to never leave athletics, the military setting was a very pleasant surprise and a job that she grew to really love. After graduating from Auburn with a master’s degree in Biomechanics, she packed everything she owned into her car and drove across the country to live in The Rocky Mountains. Jordan is particularly grateful to have the opportunity to live in such a beautiful place, and to work with such a kind and supportive team. War eagle!
