Jessica Livingston - Board Member
Jessica holds a BA from MSU in Interdisciplinary Humanities, and studied dance and theater at LCC and MSU. After college she moved to Seattle to study Salsa and Swing dancing. In 2000, she moved to NYC to pursue modeling and acting. After 9/11, she started her own massage therapy practice as a way to give back. Jessica returned to MI in 2006 with her then fiancé, and currently resides in East Lansing. While still practicing massage, she also enjoys working from home with a nutraceutical company, which affords her time to raise her twin boys, pursue dance, and Yoga.
She has 20 years’ experience as a seasoned Executive Administrator working in everything from fashion, interior design, and finance, to medical education, pharmaceutical advertising, and farm credit. Additional experience includes Haute Couture Showroom Director, VIP & Special Events Coordinator, Marketing & Social Media Specialist, and Executive Administrative Supervisor.

Jessica has been dancing all her life, but only started taking classes in college. She continues to dance with Happendance and enjoys performing in the Spring Concert and DANCE Lansing. For the last decade, she has worked with LEPFA and the OTCA to include dance in Common Ground and Oktoberfest. She hopes to further the opportunities for adult dance and performance in Lansing.
