About me

Jordan Johnson standing on the bluffs that overook La Crosse, WI.  Click for a larger image.My name is Jordan Johnson.  I am currently in the second semester of my freshman year at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse.  I am majoring in biology with a concentration in the biomedical sciences and minoring in chemistry.  Some day, I hope to become a primary care physician.  The human body is fascinating to me, so I love learning how it works and how to keep it healthy. 

In my spare time I enjoy listening to music, playing sports, and exercising.  I played on the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse's Ultimate (frisbee) team in the fall and found that I love playing Ultimate.  Most of all, I love being outside.  Nature is beautiful and fascinating.  La Crosse, WI is a great place for nature enthusiasts to live because of the Mississippi River, the local marshes, and the bluffs bordering the city to the east.   

Why did I choose the highbush blueberry?  The first reason is quite simple: blueberries are delicious!  Another reason why I chose blueberries is because of their nutritional value.  Besides being healthy because they are a  fruit, blueberries have antioxidants that are very good for your heart.
