While living in Seattle I came to know this family through Issaquah Dance Theatre. Their mom, Melissa, was a dance teacher and director. I had the privilege of teaching and choreographing for Jessi and the joy of watching Joey show off his awesome hound dog moves. When I made the decision to move to Columbus Ohio, guess who else had also been making plans to move to Columbus Ohio. That’s right, this awesome family. We arrived within days of each other and I’m so happy that they’re here!
