ABOUT JESS

 

Just a Florida girl who ran far away from everything she knew in a desperate attempt to chase love and find herself. What a trip! I can share with you the various parts of my journey that led me all the way up and all the way down…

My dog and I have been to the most beautiful places in Hawaii, and weʻre still exploring. I have a solid plan to wear bikinis til Iʻm “too old” for it, whatever that means, I guess when Iʻm dead. But never letting go of that self love, body positivity element that will allow me to do so.

Iʻve worked in retail and also in bars, so I know what itʻs like to serve others while holding myself to the highest regard. My heart has been so obnoxiously in love and in turn so hurt that I could barely breathe. I know what it feels like to be both the majority and the minority, and the latter is nothing short of humbling. Being an educator has allowed me the opportunity to teach at large festivals (where I was scared shitless) and Iʻve also had. classes that not a soul showed up for.

I was a real hot mess in my 20’s but as I got older, I got my shit together enough to train for and finish an Ironman. Since then, I’ve dabbled in endurance training, dance, yoga, HIIT, and CrossFit. I have had to work hard for anything considered an athletic achievement and I credit that solely to my mindset and determination. We’re talking blood, sweat, and tears…definitely not luck or genetics.

We are no different, you and I. Our lives are rich with experiences, mine just always leads me back to movement and that feeling of power, strength, and courage I get from it. It makes no difference, yoga, dancing, picking up heavy shit, I feel on top of the world. 

Think Beyonce in a sparkly ass dress with the wind blowing her hair…only with a barbell.

If I could bottle that up and share it with you, my heart would be so full.

Let’s do this!
