JESSICA FUNKE HO
Owner / Founder / Coach
VAULT PK is a family owned and operated business. With the help of her dad and brother, what started as a dream for Jessica, has now turned into a reality. Together they imagined, built and started VAULT PK. Jessica loves working with children and watching them as they grow in confidence, skill level, and athleticism. As a mother of four children of her own, she understands the struggles of parenthood, and knows she still has a lot to learn. Her favorite moments in this new venture are seeing the joy and excitement on the students faces as they challenge themselves to reach new heights and skill levels.
