Amy Jordan is a second-year graduate student in the Clinical Psychology Doctoral Program at Bowling Green State University. She spent the majority of her childhood in Hays, Kansas, and received her Bachelors of Science in Psychology at Fort Hays State University in 2017. She then received her Masters of Science in Clinical Psychology at Missouri State University in 2019.
Amy is broadly interested in the impact of body image on areas such as mood, relationships, and eating behaviors. She is advised by Dr. Dara Musher-Eizenman, with whom she is preparing a research project on the outcomes of positive and negative body talk between mothers and daughters. Following graduate school, Amy hopes to teach and advise both undergraduate and graduate students in a lab of her own. She currently enjoys running, hiking, and spending time with her two huskies.
