This is My Story

M.S. Counseling, Career Specialization, California State University, Sacramento
B.S. Psychology, University of Oregon

Hi there, my name is Jordan and I am excited to welcome you to Ama La Vida! I was born and raised in a small town in Northern California. Growing up on the coast of Northern California I developed a love of redwood trees, foggy mornings, and hiking. I then moved to Oregon where I attended the University of Oregon.

While there I studied psychology and business administration, and developed my passion for helping others. Upon completion of my degree, I decided to further my education to gain a foundation of career counseling, so I moved to central California to pursue my graduate degree. Now that I have finished school and have some free time on my hands, I love having the ability to drive a few hours in any direction and being able to camp in the mountains, by a lake, or next to the ocean.

In my studies of career counseling, I have had the opportunity to work at both the community college and university levels, as well as in private coaching. My path has given me the opportunity to support students in exploring their skills, interests, and passions to choose a major or career field; supporting job seekers with resumes, cover letters, and interview preparation; and guiding others through career transitions. As a career specialist with Ama La Vida, I am excited to help with resume refresh, revamp and creation in order to help clients who are ready to take action in pursuing a new career or those who are looking for greater fulfillment.

I am excited to partner with you to truly get to know you and to provide you with tools to support you in your job search.
