Jessica is interested in specializing in exercise aimed towards tackling asthma, diabetes, obesity and stress. An asthmatic herself, she knows that exercise can sometimes be daunting. Jessica started running in 2011 When she realized that she could barely run a fourth mile without having an asthma attack, she devised a regimen of carefully monitored, consistent gradual increases in intensity to overcome this obstacle. Jessica was successful and as a result achieved her goal of running a full 5k without her emergency inhaler in May 2012. She has since completed several 5ks and continues to make progress. She has set a new goal of running a 10k. She has also witnessed the difficulties and stress associated with exercising while diabetic. She wants to help others overcome these obstacles and take back the active lifestyle they deserve.
For personal fitness, Jessica loves country line dance, swing dance and two-stepping. She also enjoys high-intensity interval training, plyometrics and yoga.
Outside of fitness classes, Jessica also works part time at KP Event Design, a floral and design business located in Overland Park, Kansas that specializes in wedding design. Jessica appreciates the opportunity to “play” with flowers, make altar backdrops and help make each wedding unforgettable.
