Jess P

Jessica took her first dance class at the age of 3 and switched to twirling batons in middle school. Ask anyone in her family, she loves to be front and center performing! After graduate school, she moved to Richmond to complete her residency year and decided to make the city home. Never a runner growing up unless forced in gym class, Jess noticed that lots of people in Richmond run. In an effort to make friends in a new place- she joined a few running teams. She has completed 2 full Richmond marathons, 3 Richmond half marathons, and a number of smaller races. She took her first barre class over 4 years ago as a way to cross train and has been hooked ever since. When City Barre opened, she knew she didn't want to be anywhere else! It's more than getting in a workout- City Barre is a community of amazing and strong women that she is pumped to be a part of!


My favorite thing about barre is that it never gets easier. Each class has its challenges and makes you stronger. I love getting into the shake and knowing that my muscles are changing and then focusing on slaying that final 10!

When not at the barre, Jessica is an Audiologist at Virginia Ear, Nose & Throat, specializing in hearing and balance. Jess and her fiancé love hanging out in the city with their odd couple dogs 93 pound Hopkins and 13 pound Penny, and they are currently planning their wedding for June of 2020!
