Jessica graduated from Purdue University with a Bachelor’s degree in Human Development and Family Studies, with a specialization in Child Development. She has many years of experience working with children ages 0-5 in various settings including preschool, Healthy Families of Northwest Indiana, and now First Steps. Jessica has always loved working with children and their families and looks forward to seeing their smiling faces every session!

She has a special passion for early intervention, as she believes the first years of a child’s life are the most essential in forming the fundamental building blocks of their future growth and development. She believes that play-based learning and parent-child interaction are essential components of child development. Jessica’s objective is to help children reach their full potential as they meet their goals and milestones, empowering them along the way!

Fun fact: if she could only eat one thing for the rest of her life it would be sushi!
