She realized however, her passion lay with teaching others, not competing herself. She switched to becoming a coach for the non competitive and has been coaching for 5 years. Kym is also training to be an official jump rope competition judge this year for provincials!

Jessica first joined the team in 2007 after the team performed a demonstration at the school at which her mother taught. She jumped on the recreational team for 2 years, then joined the competitive team, where her passion for the sport grew for the following 8 years - competing provincially, nationally, and internationally. Jessica is now pursuing her passion to be a mentor at the University of Victoria in the Elementary Teacher Education program. After a year break from jumping competively, she found herself missing her Island Hopper family very much, and has returned this year to coach the recreational team. She is looking forward to working with the talented jumpers and coaches and to welcome so many young and new jumpers to this incredible sport and team!
