A graduate of University of Pennsylvania and Northeastern University, she is a long time preceptor of nurse practitioner students; guest lectures in nearby graduate schools of nursing, has participated in funded SBHC research projects and has co-authored articles and book chapters on adolescence and school health.
Jordan is a pediatric nurse practitioner and program director for the Chelsea High School School-Based Health Center, a satellite clinic of Massachusetts General Hospital, where she provides primary care for the students.
Jordan knew that she wanted to combine her love of health education and counseling with a more clinical aspect, so she pursued a master’s degree in nursing from Yale University and became a certified pediatric nurse practitioner. She stayed in New Haven for two years to run a school-based health center there, and took the job at Chelsea High School in 2000. She loves working with the Chelsea population, which includes many students who come from lower-income families that have recently arrived from Central America.
Jordan is a strong advocate for school-based health care, and is an active volunteer for Williams College, currently serving as the President of the Williams College Society of Alumni.
