G'day! My name is Jordan and I was fortunate enough to be selected as this year's Melbourne Rose. Originally a Limerick lady, I set off for Melbourne in January 2018. The city has given me endless opportunities, which I have seized with both hands.
At 28 years of age, I currently work as a forensic mental health occupational therapist, based in a maximum security men's prison. My line of work has given me an ample supply of both professional and life lessons. Each day I am faced with new challenges and unexpected yet rewarding situations.
The majority of my spare time is spent on the pitch playing Aussie Rules. Sport has always been a passion of mine. Having earned a black belt in Tae-Kwon-Do at 16, I have recently dipped my toes into some Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
I am also passionate about nutrition, and am currently studying a Master's in Food, Nutrition and Health. Travelling has been a major part of my life, having lived and volunteered in Ghana for six months, taught in Italian summer camps and most now taking the trip Down Under.
My parents raised a dreamer. One constant throughout my adventures has been the support of my family, for which I am forever grateful.
