To date, the Live Finesse brand has expanded into a newsletter (The House of Finesse), Podcast (The Hot Girls Podcast), Engagement Group for women of color (B.I.G.G.), A women’s empowerment dance class (Duality), and a Shop (The Live Finesse Shop). Essence is now focusing on educating content creators of color through her School of Finesse. She earned her Bachelors degree in Economics from The University of North Carolina at Charlotte.

Essence is a finesser because she realized throughout various points in her life she just had to figure it out. She learned how to make life work for her and maneuver smoothly through it. She’s a finesser because she has a zest for life and will find a way even when it seems impossible.
