Hello! My name is Jessie. I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology from UIC. I am also a occupational therapy practitioner. I love to work with children. I currently am working at a therapeutic clinic for children with developmental disabilities. The children I work with are from the ages 2-21 years of age. I am a fun and outgoing person who likes to engage children in learning. While babysitting I always will do something educational to ensure they are learning but still having fun. It is helpful if children tell me what they like for activities so I can incorporate their hobbies into our time together. I enjoy music, cooking, and cleaning. I am a very organized and detailed person. Being patient is one of my good traits. Contact me if you need a responsible and caring babysitter.

She’s prompt, reliable, and my son thinks she’s fun and engaging. It’s always been a pleasure to have her come over since the very beginning

Jessica has worked with me over the past year or so. She is wonderful, kind, mature, beyond responsible, intelligent, and engaging. It is a joy to see her work with kids. She is driven and I know she will excel professionally in any endeavor she chooses. I feel lucky to have her work with the children that I know.
