She decied to move across the country to do her Nutrition and Dietectic degree at McGill University where she continued to teach yoga at the University.
After gradudation she move to Nigara-on-the-Lake to be with her now-husband, Jeff.
In 2011, they got married and became pregnant. Jessica was, at first, overwhelmed with the horror stories of other woman's birth stories. However, when she started prenatal yoga with a doula, Angela Sacco, she started learning about how to create a positive natural birth expereince. Then she watched the women farther along in their pregnancies have positive and natural birth experiences.

9 months after her pregnancy, she still looked as if she was 5-months pregnant dispite losing all the baby weight and regulairly working out. She was diagnosed with a 4-finger diastasis recti gap. While the doctor said she may need sugery, she was able to work with a pelvic floor physiotherapist to heal her gap (along with the mummy pouch, back pain and leaking). She is currently doing her core exercise specialist course to help other moms heal their diastasis recti and help their core become functional again after pregnancy.
She now lives in Abbotsford, BC with her husband Jeff and 3 kids, Greyson, Vivien and Octavia.
