About Phil Doucette
Phil was involved in a youth leadership camp and co-founded Modo Yoga’s Minneapolis studio in 2011 alongside his then-wife, Ryann Jessiman. However, their marriage didn’t last long, and they divorced within a year of moving to Minnesota.
Despite the separation, Jessiman asserted that they continued to co-parent their daughter and remained business partners. However, things took a turn when she discovered the charges against Phil in Canada.
