Jesse Warmka



I was born and raised in Nairobi, Kenya. Most of my early childhood has been spent traveling through different parts of the world. I have lived the last 17 years in the United States, my first 15 years in Wisconsin. After graduating high school I took my first job as a certified automotive refinish technician for 8 years . Having a passion for entertaining and being blessed with musical talent then led me to a career in music performance. I played in a national touring band for 5 years as a professional drummer where I was responsible for bookkeeping, customer relations, advertising and marketing. This experience gave me the opportunity to travel the country and see how diverse and wonderful this country really is. I love health and fitness and greatly enjoy the outdoors, which lead me to a career as a certified personal trainer with ACE (American Council of Exercise). I feel that a combination of these experiences and my background have given me a great outlook on life. Dedicated customer service and my ability to listen to peoples needs and help deliver results are qualities that I take pride in. I moved to Palm Coast with my wife to settle down and start a family. We couldn't be happier with our decision! Walks on the beach, summer days by the pool and going out on the boat are some of our favorite things to do. I'm looking forward to continuing to help people live their dreams and look forward to seeing what the future has in store for us!
