Jordan Marcotte began working at Advanced Physical Therapy Center in 2014. She spent three years working at the front desk and as an aide. She went back to school and received her doctoral degree in Physical Therapy in May of 2020 from Trine University in Indiana and returned to Advanced PT as a Physical Therapist. Jordan also holds a bachelor’s degree in Health Science with a minor in psychology from the University of Michigan, Flint.
Jordan is LSVT-BIG certified. LSVT-BIG is a physical/occupational therapy program that helps to increase strength, motor learning, and changes in brain function in individuals with Parkinson’s Disease and other neurological conditions. She also has plans to continue her education specializing in treating Parkinson’s patients along with post-stroke patients.
Jordan spent her early years in Durand and is the oldest of three girls. During that time, a difficult family situation inspired Jordan to become a physical therapist. Her family helped take care of Jordan’s grandmother while she battled cancer. Jordan would cook and help with transfers and watch when the in-home PT’s would visit. It was an easy decision for Jordan who knew then she wanted to help others.
Jordan hit the ground running with that decision. During her clinicals, she recalls “I had an 80-year-old patient that suffered from a stroke. When I first met her, she was unable to verbally communicate…and on our first day, she was only able to take two steps. Before discharge, she walked 50 feet consistently and told me ‘thank you for everything.’”
Jordan believes her best asset is her determination to reach her goals and help others reach their goals by being attentive and listening to their needs.
Jordan loves to kayak in the summer. She spends her free time drawing, painting, and knitting. Jordan says, “I’m excited to help patients regain their quality of life!”
