Jessie’s passion for health and wellness is undeniable. As both a yoga instructor and certified personal trainer her classes combine strength and power with ease and fun. Jessie grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and graduated from Michigan State University. After three years working an unfulfilling corporate job and battling midwest winters, she moved to Portland in June 2015. Yoga was first a way to strengthen her body, but over time it helped her manage stresses, anxiety, and anger. Helping others find the many benefits of yoga has become a goal in her life. She completed her 200-hour teacher training at YoYoYogi in Portland, OR under Terri and Alex Cole in November 2015. She loves adventure, the outdoors, and traveling. Off the mat Jessie can be found training clients, hiking, teaching swim lessons, competing in triathlons, drinking coffee, eating chocolate, skiing, cooking plant-based food, and exploring all that PNW has to offer!
