Fierce Femmes: Betsy Hays and Jan Edwards of the Central California Women's Conference

Some might refer to Betsy Hays and Jan Edwards as “legendary.” We wouldn’t disagree. These two ladies are veterans of the media and communications scene, now teaching up-and-coming media and marketing professionals at California State University, Fresno. While both of these #FierceFemmes focus on educating the next generation, they are also passionate about their work as consultants for one of the largest women’s events in the Valley - the Central California Women’s Conference.

As soon as Jennifer “Jenny” Kasparian Hoekstra discovered barre training while living in Southern California, she was hooked. Upon returning to her hometown of Fresno and coming to the realization that the Central Valley was missing this workout, she took matters into her own hands. She left her career as a nurse, took a leap of faith, and opened her own studio with the help of her daughter Lauren Hoekstra as manager.
