The Core Chaud team is made up of fabulously warm people.

Get to know the Core Chaud team!

Jessica Trauner

Founder & CEO

Jessica is the heart and creator behind the Core Chaud brand as company founder. Born and raised on the east coast and an attorney by profession, Jessica is a person who simply can’t sit still. She is devoted to fitness, well-being and finding joy through Pilates, running, dance and the gym. After relocating to the Bay Area, Jessica left the law behind to pursue her passion for movement, becoming a Pilates instructor and group fitness instructor. Accustomed to wearing grip socks to Pilates and barre classes, Jessica realized the standard grip socks made out of cotton were not warm enough. After two-and-half years of trial and error, Core Chaud merino wool grip socks was born. 

When she is not CEO-ing, Jessica is teaching Pilates or going to classes for herself. Her other favorite pastimes include running, hiking and skiing, drinking coffee and eating dessert, spending time with her dog, family and friends and going back to New York City for frequent visits.

Cheyenne Avant

Sales Representative

Cheyenne is a Pilates instructor and excited to represent Core Chaud to our wholesale customers! She loves meeting fellow instructors, visiting beautiful studios and taking classes as much as possible. 

Her experience as an instructor gives her an understanding of the busy lives that instructors and studio owners lead, thus helping her create a streamlined and enjoyable ordering process for Core Chaud wholesale customers. 

Outside of Pilates, Cheyenne plays and releases music with two bands, Fawning and Night School. She plays bass, synth and sings. You can stream them online or catch them at various venues in the Bay Area. When she isn’t practicing Pilates or playing music, she’s cuddling her cat, Cowboy.
