While getting experience at the Veterinary Emergency and Specialty Hospital of Wichita, she attended the Veterinary Technician program at Heritage College. Jordan's desire to gain experience in a general practice veterinary clinic brought her to Helten Veterinary Clinic in March of 2016. She loves being outdoors and spends her free time hiking, camping, or playing with her dog, Diesel.
