Jessica is originally from rural Sparland, IL just north of Peoria. She has been practicing Qigong exercises since she was a small child along side her grandmother, who taught her own classes for many years and took Jessica to many workshops. In addition, Jessica is a certified Yoga, Pilates and Zumba instructor and has been teaching fitness classes since 2010.
Jessica teaches Mindfulness + Meditation classes which incorporate gentle and impactful postures. It is her hope that each participant will be motivated to add these excercises to their daily routines to help reduce stress and joint pain while increasing strength, energy and overall well-being.
On a personal note, Jessica is married to her college sweetheart, Brian, and they have two children, Anya and Gavin. Their family moved to Dubuque in 2013 and she and her husband both work for John Deere. They’ve enjoyed exploring the Tri-State area through hiking, biking and camping.
