Katelyn Jordan (B.S. ’08)
Katelyn Jordan’s passion for low-vision patients grew out of a summer internship at the Ophthalmology Department of the Mayo Clinic. After graduating summa cum laude from FSU’s College of Human Sciences, Jordan received a presidential graduate fellowship to the University of Houston’s School of Optometry, where she focused on low-vision research. With the aid of a research grant, Jordan studied the use and safety of bioptic telescopes for driving by the visually impaired. After completing a low-vision/primary care residency at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Charleston, South Carolina, she was named head of the Brooks Rehabilitation Center for Low Vision, where she has been instrumental in developing a cutting edge multi-disciplinary approach to serving low-vision patients.
