Meet Jessica

My mother told me something and I hold it as one of the truest things in life. Everyone has some sort of disability, but some peoples disabilities may be more obvious than others. If I never mentioned this anyone reading this would probably never know this about me, I have a learning disability in math, I am also mildly germophobic which in turn makes me slightly obsessed about cleanliness.

My mother told me something and I hold it as one of the truest things in life. Everyone has some sort of disability, but some peoples disabilities may be more obvious than others. If I never mentioned this anyone reading this would probably never know this about me, I have a learning disability in math, I am also mildly germophobic which in turn makes me slightly obsessed about cleanliness. I have had the privilege to meet some amazing people with a variety of special needs and I have had the honor to be a part of these peoples lives. Last year, I was offered the opportunity to care for a low-functioning autistic boy. He was one of the most amazing, wonderful, and just down right fun kids I've ever had the chance to meet and care for. I am hopeful for another opportunity to be of service to another person with special needs and their family.

Jessica means well but lived too far away with too much drama. Asked for gas money after working one hour.

Evelyn H. says:
I found Jessica through Care.com when I was planning my trip to Vegas. I am in a wheelchair, so I needed to find someone to help me during my stay out there. Jessica is very responsible, she always showed up at the exact times that I needed her. She is also a super nice and easygoing person and I immediately felt comfortable with her shortly after meeting her. Thank you, Jessica, for being an awesome caregiver... More
