In March 2015 she was appointed to the Idaho Senate by Gov. Butch Otter to succeed Elliot Werk, who resigned the previous month to take a seat on the Idaho State Tax Commission.[1]

Jordan holds a degree in political science from San Jose State University.[1] She moved to Boise in 1994, serving on the West Valley Neighborhood Association and the Boise City Planning and Zoning Commission.

Jordan was elected to complete the term in November 2003, and won full four-year terms in 2005, 2009 and 2013.[2]

In March 2015 Jordan was appointed to the Idaho Senate to represent District 17 – based in the Boise Bench neighborhood – upon Werk's resignation.
