Jessie Scanlon is a CPA, a certified yoga teacher and the Managing Director for Yoga In Our City. She spent 10 years learning the ins and outs of the accounting industry through her studies and as an employee at both a Big 4 accounting firm and a rapidly growing start-up company. Throughout those years, yoga was a meaningful practice that kept her grounded and connected to herself as well as the various communities she met as she moved around the country. Jessie became certified to teach in 2018 and has been sharing her love for yoga with her friends, family and community ever since.
Today, as the Managing Director of Yoga In Our City, Jessie has found a way to merge her passion for yoga with the skills she developed as an accountant in order to help the organization reach its mission of building stronger, more compassionate communities with a deep understanding of the natural connection between yoga philosophy and social justice. When she’s not coordinating or supporting the various parties involved in YIOC, you can find Jessie with a kombucha in her hand, plotting her next hike, and planning her dream tiny house.
