Jessica was first introduced to yoga in 2010. Shortly after, she attended the Yoga Journal Conference's three day immersion with Baron Baptiste and fell in love with his power yoga flow. Years later, she took on teacher training at Baptiste Affiliate Studio, Namaspa in Bend, Oregon. In winter of 2014 she received her 200 hour Teacher Certificate, and within the next year completed Level 1 Training and Advanced Art of Assisting with the Baptiste Institute. She completed Level 2 in July of 2015 and became a Certified Baptiste Teacher that same summer. The journey of teacher training sparked a new passion for powerful living in Jessica. She has a passion for growth and community and has been empowered to step up as a leader in her life. She teaches a powerful yoga flow class encouraging community, connection and fun! Jessica believes yoga is for everyone, every age and every body.This vitality also shows up in the raising of her 4 young children. Showing them that when you find something you LOVE and lights you up, you can go for it: even if it scares you. This is exactly what Jessica took on when she partnered up with fellow passionate yoga teachers and opened Willamette Valley Power Yoga in 2015. She feels deeply blessed to create a studio that will support and inspire the growing yoga community in her hometown.
When she is not sweating it out at the studio, you can find Jessica at Disneyland (she's addicted), having adventures snowboarding or paddle boarding in Central Oregon with her husband Brian, the four joys of her life, Annie, Halle, Henry, Charlie and fur babies, Margo and Bernice.
