After a year of splitting her time between helping out at Fresh Cup and selling wedding dresses as a Bridal Stylist, Jordan Johnson is excited to join the Fresh Cup team full-time as Associate Editor. Born and raised in Yamhill County, Oregon, Jordan grew up riding dirt bikes with her father, playing the cello in the high school orchestra, and learning how to cook from her grandparents. Jordan majored in Business Administration and minored in Fine Art at the University of Oregon in Eugene, where she was awarded the Charles H. Lundquist Outstanding Student in Entrepreneurship Award. She then went to work for Broussard Communications as a public relations Account Coordinator in Portland, representing restaurants, wineries, and coffee shops throughout the city. When she has downtime, Jordan likes to bake breads, cakes, and cookies, or work on her illustrations, which you can see on her Instagram account @DrawnHungry.
