Jessica was born and raised in southern New Jersey and has loved working with children and families ever since she was a young girl. The daughter of a veteran early childhood educator, Jessica attended Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania as an early childhood and special education double major. She earned dual bachelor’s degrees in Early Childhood Education and Special Education in 2020, and looks forward to obtaining her masters degree in the future.
After living on the East Coast her entire life, Jessica recently relocated to Arizona in the peak of summer, as she loves a good challenge! She has worked in the world of early childhood services and education her entire career, as a pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, and special education teacher. She has also served as a children’s art teacher, and helped lead summer camps during her teenage years. She has experience working with children ages birth to twelve years old, with varying diagnoses, in both private and public settings, and loves to help wherever she can! Jessica was thrilled to join the Ally team in the summer of 2022 as an Administrative Operations Coordinator, where she aims to serve and support our children and their families in any way possible every day.
Jessica resides in Gilbert with her husband, Ryan, who was her high school sweetheart. When she has free time, she loves to read, bake, go for walks, and plan her family's next vacation to the beach.
