Jessica first learned about CARE when one of her foster children received Early Intervention Services from the organization. The kindness and caring of the staff on those home visits made a positive impression and made her want to work at CARE. Jessica began working in the preschool in August 2022 and to-date her favorite thing about the culture is that “everyone is so nice, especially the staff and the early learning families; and they all make you feel like you are part of a family.”
Jessica was most recently employed by the Intermediate Unit 9 3-to 5- year-old classroom that focused on Verbal Therapy/ Applied Behavioral Analysis. She has completed a Credential of Competency for Special Education Paraeducators from the State of Pennsylvania. She also has experience working with children and adolescents in an intensive outpatient program for developmental and behavioral challenges.
