Jessica Gregorie

Owner and creator of Raising the Barre, Nicole loves getting her heart rate up and finding a way to help people reach their fitness goals. What she loves most about RTB is that any person at any fitness level can come in and feel confident that they can complete the workout and see a major change in their body. All-the-time wife and mama to three boys and a girl, she is passionate about her family, fitness, and seeing women walk in their fullest potential. When she's not at the barre, her favorite places are the beach, the boat, laughing with friends, or eating anything Mexican!


Originally a Georgia peach, Jessica Gregorie graduated from Clemson University with a major in Health Science and a minor in Athletic Training. Her born and raised James Island husband brought her to Charleston and they have two wonderful girls. Jessica participated in 12 years of gymnastics, with an emphasis on ballet. Her passion for strength and flexibility quickly found a home at the barre several years ago. When Jessica is not shaking and toning at RTB, she enjoys anything fun in the sun, whether its hiking, the beach or on the boat.

Kylene Parker

Originally from Atlanta, Kylene moved to Charleston with her husband and sweet pup in 2018. Growing up doing ballet she loved how graceful and strong the sport made her feel. After taking her first barre class as an adult she was hooked and loves that barre combines everything she loves about dance with a great workout set to fun music. When Kylene isn't teaching at the barre, she's in the classroom as a fifth grade teacher which she loves because she's never sitting down and every day is different...the same is true at RTB! If she's not teaching, you can catch her enjoying sunshine on the beach or baking up a storm in the kitchen.
