Meet Jessica

To be honest, I never have had paid experience working with anyone with special needs. I have helped out many friends with disabilities such as ADD, ADHD, Diabetes, MS, Cancer, Thyroid problems, Down Syndrome, Autism, Asthma and Allergic reactions, being paralyzed, etc. Also, I used to help out my friend once in a while and watch her daughter who has development delays. I worked with her trying to teach her with making noises, reading, understanding things such as dogs and cats and the sounds they make, etc. In addition to that, my uncle was diagnosed with stage 3... more
To be honest, I never have had paid experience working with anyone with special needs. I have helped out many friends with disabilities such as ADD, ADHD, Diabetes, MS, Cancer, Thyroid problems, Down Syndrome, Autism, Asthma and Allergic reactions, being paralyzed, etc. Also, I used to help out my friend once in a while and watch her daughter who has development delays. I worked with her trying to teach her with making noises, reading, understanding things such as dogs and cats and the sounds they make, etc. In addition to that, my uncle was diagnosed with stage 3 cancer all over his body three years ago. It attacked him all over his body causing him to loose his sense of touch, smell, taste, sight, and hearing. He passed in November of 2009. I worked with the home nurse to learn how to administer medicines, etc. I also used to clean, cook, bathe, transport him to and from his wheel chair, and take him out. I was with him up to his last breath, literally. Also, my sister has Lupus and I helped care for her until she moved to Florida. So, though I do not have professional experience, I do have personal experience and a huge heart!

Kerri S. says:
Jessica filled in at the last minute and she has been wonderful with my son. She is so enthusiastic and caring, as well as responsible. My son loves being with her and she has helped out in difficult situations twice, first when my other sitter quit at the last minute and second when the first day of school was postponed for a week. I highly recommend her.

Jessica C. responds:
THANK YOU!!! ... Are you sure he has to go back to school? lol :) I really do appreciate this experience to the utmost. Your son has taught me so much including things about myself! It was very special to me to see how he immediately connected with me and how he communicates with me. He will say or do certain things that spark that "ah-ha!" switch in my head , at the perfect moments as if he truly knows what... More
