Early on, Jessi made a choice to help children cope with emotional and behavioral difficulties when she elected to complete her Educational Specialist Degree from University of Kansas and pursue a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from TCU. Serving as a school psychologist for the past 8 years in the Plano Independent School District gave Jessi the opportunity to help children hone social and emotional coping mechanisms. To create balance in her own life, Jessi became an ardent yoga practitioner. She completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training through OmBalance in August 2017. Jessi and her husband Phil, who is a Reverend at HPUMC, live in Dallas and have two children.
