Jordan is a second year POP student at the University of Hartford. As a student and teaching assistant, Jordan experiences hands-on learning, works with patient models, and helps ease in first year students to the profession. In undergrad Jordan studied biology and psychology, then a social media post convinced her to pursue POP because of the clear impact she could have on patient’s lives. Jordan likes that she will be able to immerse herself in fabrication and figure out how things fit together, ultimately seeing how her work improves a patient’s mobility and overall well-being. Jordan enjoys the variety of her POP studies—learning about everything from cranial remolding orthotics to trans-tibial prosthetics—and expanding her clinical experience beyond the US.
