Prior to this, Jordan was most recognized for her role as Lizzie in the children's television series, Life With Derek, where she shares in a Young Artist Award for "Best Young Ensemble."

Acting since the age of nine, this Ontario native has made several appearances in series such as Flashpoint, Instant Star and The Good Witches Wedding. Not one to shy away from the big screen, she's also appeared in the feature films The Stone Angel, a festival film based on a novel by Margaret Lawrence, and as young Terry 'Tuff' Ryan in The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio alongside Julianne Moore and Woody Harrelson.

The award was presented in May 2011 to Linda Schuyler and Jordan in New York at the historic Waldorf Astoria hotel. That episode also garnered the series a Primetime Emmy© nomination for Degrassi in 2011. In 2011 Jordan won a Gemini Award for "Best Performance in a Children's or Youth Program or Series."
