Having torn her ACL three times (in the same knee), she still somehow found a way to return to the pro level. Now retired, Jordan has transitioned her leadership traits into a new purpose: helping others. She’s the founder of theACLclub, which focuses on bringing together a community to support, empower and inspire athletes in persevering through the challenges and triumphs of the ACL journey. And here’s a surprising fact for you, there are 300,000 ACL surgeries a year in the US alone. You hear about ACL injuries all of the time, especially in pro sports, but I had no idea the number of surgeries was that high! Jordan is also the host of the Show Your Scars podcast where she features guests with the focus of embracing your scars, overcoming injuries and sharing your strengths. Needless to say, Jordan is a huge influence in not only the ACL community, but a great role model for anyone overcoming sports related injuries. In This Episode, You Will Learn: Her long journey of overcoming 3 ACL tears The mental and physical barriers no one talks about with a ACL injuries The power behind expressing your emotions during a setback Why it’s so important to refocus in everyday life How she overcame feeling like a failure when she got injured Why journaling was such an important outlet during her recovery Why it’s important to sometimes throw expectations out the window How she was able to turn her injuries into a greater purpose with the ACL club How being a leader on the field has helped her be a leader off the field Why she wants people to realize that they can do anything Why without struggles there would be very little success How serving others can help you change your perspective

I've been looking forward to the release of the podcast. While personally I haven't faced adversity; knowing others who have, and have had to work with them through that adversity has really brought the subject close to my heart. I can't wait for further podcasts! Appreciate everything that you do. To bring attention to something which really needs it, the effort and thought brought to the topic is something that a lot of people need. Had the people that I care about had the opportunity to hear yours and others' stories would have helped the situation much sooner.
