Having been raised in a household that gave importance to health and education, Jessie has always been drawn to helping herself and others find ways of preventing illness and improving wellbeing.

 

After 8 years as a Dental Hygienist, Jessie found the need to pursue a career that would put her in the path of a more wholistic centered atmosphere.  Weight lifting was the catalyst for that transition as it inspired her to obtain her certification in Personal Training through NASM.

 

However, she still felt she needed more understanding of human movement to be able to provide people the results they wanted through exercise, so a year later she inscribed herself at the NC School of Advanced Bodywork.  There she discovered neuromuscular therapy and myofascial release work for the first time and was hooked!  Jessie loves to combine bodywork with exercise to jumpstart or further her clients on a path of healing, health, and strength. 

 

Jessie enjoys working with all populations, especially active individuals, such as body builders looking to increase their gains and performance, and those who are on the other end of the spectrum that are older in years and perhaps not as active but still care about their mobility.  Her time spent as a hygienist has also given Jessie more insight and interest into populations affected by clenching and grinding of teeth and enjoys helping those seeking relief from the effects of bruxism.
