In 2018 Weisinger was named the head coach of then newly formed UC Davis equestrian team. In the 3 years since she was named head coach she has grown the team to consist of 3 coaches, 27 horses and 35 student-athletes. Today UCD remains the youngest Dual Discipline Team. Prior to her success at UC Davis, Weisinger led Texas A&M's horsemanship squad. During that time, the Aggies captured the 2017 NCEA championship, becoming the first team ever to win a national title without the benefit of a first-round bye. 

Prior to returning to her alma mater, Weisinger spent more than three years as an assistant trainer at the Guynn Training Center in Berthoud, Colorado. During that stint, she formed the Rocky Mountain Wranglers, a middle/high school team that competed in the IEA.

Originally from Corpus Christi, Texas, the former Jessie Highfill lettered at Texas A&M from 1999 to 2002. She was one of the original members of the school's equestrian program as well as a member of its first national championship in 2002.
