Jordan made the move from Portland, Oregon (no, she's never watched the TV show "Portlandia") to Fredericksburg, Virginia with over a year and a half of experience in the industry through internships, tutoring, and freelance work.

She is a graduate of The Art Institute of Portland, where during her second year, she was asked to be a student tutor - in-class as well as one-on-one for AutoCad, Revit, SketchUp, Podium, Adobe Suites, and more.

Jordan spent almost a year at her first internship at Staicoff Design Company focusing in hospitality, strictly boutique hotels and restaurants. Her second internship focused on healthcare design, mostly within children’s hospitals across the country.
