With just a wink of the eye and a powerful thrust of her hips, she's got you hooked. In 2018, Jessabelle won 1st runner up, Miss Exotic World at the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekender. This year, she was voted one of the Top 10 most influential burlesque performers of 2020 by 21st Century Burlesque. Last year, she was in the top 20.

When it comes to social media, Jessabelle is quite versed as she spends hours a day scrolling. However, those hours spent have taught her a lot of things about social media, how it works and how to gain a following while still being a semi-naked person the Internet. Her expertise on this subject matter comes first hand, from having decades of experience on various platforms and from many a trial and error moments as well as speaking with various people in the marketing industry.
