Patient Coordinator

Jordan is originally from Wyoming – Go WYO! She moved to Colorado with her 3 boys, Anthony, Blaze, and Cain, about 7 years ago to further her dental career. We consider Jordan our scheduling and insurance guru with her ability to find the best appointments for our patients- she attributes this to juggling and coordinating the chaotic schedules for her boys. Jordan brings 8 years of experience to our team and considers Severance Dental her favorite place she’s worked at so far. The small-town feel and relatable patients make her feel at home.

Besides dental, Jordan spends as much time as possible with her husband, kids, and dog Sparkle. She loves everything Pink and Sparkly, Jeep-related, country music, and considers food her main love language.
