Her career started with pageantry; titles include Miss World Peace, Miss San Francisco Bay Area, Miss Congeniality, and Miss Hawaiian Tropic – and the practice of special skills in piano playing and different styles of dance. Jessica's natural and strong public speaking ability and passion for the arts, specifically for making dance accessible to everyone through dance instruction at an early age. After her successful pageantry career, her experience led her into film and print productions.

As a young adult, Jessica built a business model that merged the dance studio and talent agency as a tool to support dancers around job stability and media opportunities. This has allowed emerging and veteran artists to build and network in the San Francisco and Bay Area market. In 2011, the agency housed over 150+performing artists seen in various print, film and event productions, while operating Rae Studios, a fully-serviced dance studio open 7 days a week providing services in group classes, rentals, corporate wellness and private lessons. These businesses continue to help talent professionals earn various incomes through one entity.  Jessica knew at an early age that racial, gender, body and movement level inclusion needed a home around dance.  Rae Agency and Rae Studios have been a safe haven for hundreds of community leaders, students, emerging artists and experienced working professionals.
