She then went on to pursue her teaching career at COS and Fresno State where she received her Bachelors Degree in Liberal Studies in 2000. She married her husband Steve, a Science Teacher at Hanford High School, in 2002. JJ is currently a substitute teacher in the Hanford and Lemoore areas. They reside in Hanford with their daughter Darian (12 years old) and their son Bryson (9 years old). This is JJ's tenth year teaching dance and her first year here at Dancers Edge. She is super excited and looking forward to the beginning of her career here at Dancers Edge!!!

"As far back as I can remember dance and children have always been two of my greatest passions! They both bring me such joy! For me, dance has always been an outlet where I could express myself in a safe environment. My studio became my second home and my fellow dancers were like family. And it couldn't have gotten any better than when my two passions were intertwined and I became a dance teacher! I love what I do and can't wait to share my passion for dance with the students here at DE!"
