Jessica’s Bio

To tell you a little about myself I graduated from Philadelphia Biblical University (now Cairn University) in May of 2009 with a Masters in Education and a Bachelors in Elementary Education and Bible. While in college I taught infants through Kindergarten in an early learning center for 5 years (2004 until 2009). I have been nannying and babysitting for different families for 16 years now. I have done overnight care for infant twins for 5 different families now and overnight care for several other families with older children as well. From 2012 until 2013, I did around the clock care for infant twins from the day they came home from hospital, as the mother had some medical issues shortly after their birth and was a single mom. I have also been a live-in nanny for 3 other families. I currently work part-time for an agency called Let Mommy Sleep, caring for newborns (singletons and twins) over night. I was a teacher in Philadelphia from 2009 until 2011 , but was laid off due to budget cuts. During those years I taught Kindergarten and 3rd grade. I also was a special instructor with early intervention for a short amount of time between when I graduated from College and when I started teaching. I have a lot of experience with infants, particularly infant twins. I also have twin brothers with special needs. A little about my background, I grew up on a dairy cow farm in central PA. I love to travel and have volunteered my time in orphanages in Mexico, Haiti, Bangladesh and Nepal. In my free time I enjoy playing field hockey and basketball. I love children and have a variety of experience caring for children ranging from infants to 12 years old. I look forward to hearing from you! God bless!

Jessica has been babysitting our boys (11 and 8) for several months now so that my husband and I can have "date nights".

Jessica is very responsible, reliable, and has a naturally sweet dispostion. The kids enjoy spending time with her and I have peace of mind when the kids are with her.

I highly recommend Jessica.

Provider's Response

I only babysat for Jackie for a short period of time before I started having severe allergy problems from her cats. I grew up on a farm with many types of animals including cats and had never had a problem. I think it is kind of unfair to use the word unreliable because I always showed up on time and never missed a day, but when leaving I did give very little notice because of the severity of my allergies.

EXCEPTIONAL!

Jessica is by far the best babysitter we have every had. She has enough energy to handle small children and keeps my children entertained without overstimulating them. She is reliable and kind. I can not say enough about how pleased I am with the care she provides!

great sitter on short notice

My wife and I have only used Jessica once but our son loved her. She was extremely good with him and was able to watch Liam on only a day or so notice. We would highly recommend her to anyone. Best part is she had no issues with our dogs which can sometimes scare people away.
