Jordan was first introduced to skateboarding at the age of 5 when she met legendary skateboarder Christian Hosoi. Jordan held on to Christian's hands while she stepped on a skateboard for the very first time and began her journey. Nobody could have imagined the impact that moment would have on Jordan's life. Years later, Hosoi Skateboards became her first major sponsor.
After that first experience, Jordan immediately showed a love for skateboarding. As she grew, so did her skills and her desire to compete. She began skating competitively at local city and state level competitions, and in 2015 she traveled to Encinitas, California to compete in her first major competition, the Exposure all-women’s event that drew competitors from around the globe.
Since then, Jordan has gone on to compete internationally. Her results include first place at the 2017 World Cup Skateboarding National Championship, second place in amateurs at the 2018 Vans Combi Bowl, second place at the 2019 Vans Americas Regionals, first place in amateurs at the 2019 Vans Combi Bowl, second place in amateur at the 2018 Dew Tour, and second place in the pro/am category at the 2019 Exposure.
In 2019, Jordan also competed at the World Championships in Brasil, a qualifier for the 2020 Olympics. She was the second-highest placed American in the Park event, earning her a spot on the 2020 USA Skateboarding Women’s Park National team. After the Covid Pandemic affected the world that year, Jordan used this time off from competition to learn the 540 McTwist, a trick only a handful of girls in the world have ever landed. In 2021, Jordan placed 2nd at the National Championships, successfully landing her McTwist.
A returning member of the USA Skateboarding Women’s Park National Team in 2021, Jordan is excited for the future of skateboarding and its history-making debut at the Tokyo Olympics. She looks forward to traveling again and sharing her love and passion for skateboarding with others. When she's not skating, Jordan can be found chilling out with her family, friends, and French Bulldog, Maximus, drawing, and playing drums.
