Jordan grew up in a small town in Southwest Arkansas. After high school he knew he wanted to pursue a career in health sciences. He graduated from the University of Central Arkansas in 2012 with a bachelor’s degree in Health Science. Soon after, he found himself pursuing a career in renewable energy. Jordan was working in Oklahoma, Texas, Missouri, and Arkansas as a solar apprentice electrician and in doing so discovered a passion for electronics. He decided to go back to school and graduated with highest honors from Texarkana College and earned an Associate of Applied Sciences in Electronics Technology/Instrumentation. In 2019 Jordan started working for DrMet Biomedical and Laser Services. Jordan chose to work for DrMet Biomedical because he felt that working as a Biomedical Technician was the best way for him to use both of his degrees on a day-to-day basis, doing what he loves to do. “Being able to work with an amazing team of people and for the best biomedical company in Arkansas just happens to be an added bonus!” Jordan added.
