Born and Raised In The South Bay Area of Los Angeles County. She likes to say that she did not choose to teach, teaching chose her at the age of 18. She was asked to teach at a local studio in Carson as a dance instructor and began teaching drill at an after school program and has been mentoring ever since. Jesenia has been in the education field for over 10 years teaching kids from all ages and just recently developed her own after school dance program called BIG SISTER DANCE CLUB In Santa Monica. She is now very excited to share her passion and enthusiasm for dance and fitness at Pure Barre and inspire others to continue to strive for theirs.
