Elementary Bully Prevention Program:

 "Compassion over Reaction; Stop Bullying by understanding why it starts."

Goal: To shift the focus from labeling children to discussing behaviors and choices.  Helping kids identify bullying behaviors in themselves to stop bullying where it starts. Compassion Over Reaction uses the perception of bully breed dogs to educate children about bully behavior, compassion and protecting themselves from dangerous situations.  

BIO: Jessica is a life long dancer and a Colorado native who moved to Michigan for love in 2015.  Recently she and her family moved back to Colorado for work, but she continues to travel back and forth to Michigan for appearances. She started teaching dance at age 13 and opened her first studio in 2008; winning multiple awards including "Best In The City" several times.  She has danced professionally throughout her adult life, including three seasons for the Denver Nuggets.  Jessica has four children and is proud to represent her new home state Michigan.  Her greatest achievment is seeing her character lessons create compassionate and conscientious people..  Her passion for life comes from teaching kids to be kind to themselves, to others and to all living things.



Dare to Donate December

To donate your hair click here

Jessica has launched an annual, nationwide hair donation program benefitting Children With Hair Loss called Dare To Donate December!

Kids are encouraged to donate and parents are encouraged to open a discussion of what makes us beautiful.  Jessica believes we are not a collection of features but a sum of our character.  By donating her own hair, Jessica hopes to demonstrate that what makes her beautiful is not what can be seen but what can be felt; that actions of kindness define us far more than anything else.

Every December, she will coordinate salons across the country in collecting donations of healthy hair for CWHL.  The only requirements are that the hair be healthy and at least 8" in length.  To sign up to donate, or to get your salon involved, email Jessica at or sign up HERE
