Jesse started her training at Hawkins School of Performing arts in Folsom, California, competing with the company’s mini hip hop team “XS Energy” at the age of 7. From there, Jesse’s love for dance grew as she expanded her training to ballet, tap, lyrical, contemporary, urban community styles, modern, musical theatre, and Pom throughout various studios in the Bay Area. She has been a member of national award winning teams as well as winning her own national titles and scholarships like the “Doug Caldwell: Passion for Dance “ scholarship at Break the Floor’s convention, JUMP. She has worked as a mentor and a teacher to dancers from the age of 2 all the way to 18. She has taught at various studios, produced workshops and currently works as a professional dancer at Disneyland Resort while being a full time student at California State University Long Beach. Jesse is passionate about bringing human connection back into the technological age, through the arts, and hopes to someday share this dream with the rest of the world by creating her own non-profit organization that introduces the opportunity of the arts to youth living in impoverished regions of third world countries.
