Jessica has been working with children for the past 10 years in both California and New York. She has worked with all ages from newborns to high schoolers. From trips to the park or board games on a rainy day to a fun bath time or a smooth bedtime, Jessica loves to make every situation a great one. She believes that there are few greater joys in life than having a positive impact on a child.
One of her favorite moments was the first time a little boy she had babysat since he was a newborn said her name. His verbal recognition of who she was for the first time created a special bond. This experience was heartwarming because he couldn’t properly pronounce her name. Her name ended up sounding like “chica.” Every time he said “chica” from that point forward it was impossible for her to not have a huge smile on her face. It’s those small moments that make her love her job.
