In the fall of 2013, Coach Jessie was looking to make some major life changes and tackle some serious challenges. She had always been active growing up; competing in gymnastics, cheerleading and dance. The NPC Bikini division seemed to be the perfect challenge to take on.
Jessie has her Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene degree from the Ohio State University. So naturally, her science mind fell in love with the idea of tracking macros and flexible dieting to achieve the ultimate physique for the bikini division. She became her own science experiment, coupled with the background of performance sports, it was a natural fit.
Jessie first stepped on the NPC stage in Spring of 2014 and turned pro in 2015 at NPC Universe, winning her class along with the Overall Bikini title. Jessie is a 2x IFBB Bikini Pro champ. She has competed at two of the most prestigious IFBB Pro shows: The Arnold Bikini International and The Bikini Olympia.
Along Jessie’s career in the NPC and IFBB she found fulfillment in coaching NPC bikini clients with their posing. Giving back to the community and being a positive role model had always been a goal and priority of hers once she achieved her IFBB pro status. Coaching was something Jami DeBernard knew Jessie would be good at, because of her passion for bodybuilding and her goal of helping others.
Jessie’s favorite part about coaching is empowering women to take control and ownership of their health, both mentally and physically. She finds reward in leading clients to find their inner strength and instill confidence in achieving their goals.
Jessie’s ideal client is one that will work hard, stay consistent, and take on challenges. Jessie loves working with coachable athletes and lifestyle clients. Jessie is detail-oriented, understanding, and encouraging. She will hold you accountable towards the goals you set for yourself, so make sure you’re ready to work!
Outside of competing and coaching, Jessie enjoys traveling the world and being with family & friends! She loves cheering on her husband, Lance, in his professional MMA career. And of course spending lots of time with their two dogs (Maximus and Honey Bear).
