She has graced the covers of New York Times Magazine, Fitness Magazine, Newport Beach Magazine, Yoga International, Viva Glam Magazine and been featured in countless others.

Naturally, Jesse made the transition to Film and TV as casting directors lined up to feature her in their projects and she demonstrated great talent as well as natural beauty on camera.  She starred as Barker's beauty in two seasons of "The Price Is Right". She was the TV Grammy Awards Girl and has appeared in  dozens of commercials for Coors Light, Miller Light, Budlight, Shisedo, Axe, Burger King, Budweiser, Hallmark, Ebay, McDonalds, and Taco Bell.  Her movie credits include "Land of the Lost" with Will Ferrell.  She also appeared in a music video with Kenny Chesney.

Jesse's career has flourished since she overcame rheumatoid arthritis through Yoga and homeopathic treatments.  She is a example of what can be achieved without through self inquiry, determination, and an open mind.  She is sharing her story about Yoga and self healing through her own blog www.thegoldensecrets.org and writing for several other publications.

Jesse Grew up with pit bulls so she has a special love for the bully breed and currently has a 150 lbs. mastiff mix. For Jesse's month July, she chose Downtown Dog Rescue. She chose them because they do amazing rescues from very high kill shelters. Often times that means that the one's most in need of their help ends up being the very misunderstood bully breed.

Mutt of The Month - Allie

Allie is an English Bull dog mixed with a Pit Bull Terrier AKA a “Bully.” She is age four. She is low and wide and has a low to medium energy level. She likes other dogs and loves to be in the house. This is a not a high activity style dog who is going to need a running partner or the Frisbee thrown for hours to wear her out. She is happy to chill on the couch.

We have marked Allie special needs because she is deaf and has very limited vision. As you can see in her photos, this is one happy dog despite being blind and deaf. Are you a special person who is open to taking on a dog that will need your dedication and patience, please apply at www.downtowndogrescue.org.

We rescued Allie from the South L.A. shelter where despite being blind and deaf, in such a chaotic overcrowded shelter, she did amazingly well. She has been spayed, vaccinated and micro-chipped and she weighs about 50 lbs. Please call us for more information on sweet Allie 818-407-4145.
