Hi, my name is Jessica and I am looking for an ongoing or occasional position across Wednesday to Friday.

I have been supporting families for over 15 years as a nanny, have supported children with disabilities in school settings, and am also an independent disability support worker. Rooted in patience, adaptability, respect, and effective communication, my services are heart-centred and aim to promote a holistic approach to well-being, caring for all needs - physical, emotional, intellectual, social and spiritual.

I have a degree in psychology and sociology, and am studying to become a holistic reproduction practitioner. I have experience working in Montessori school settings, as well as wilderness awareness/forest/bush school education. I have looked after children of all ages, including extensive newborn care, and am comfortable with providing overnight care.

I enjoy vegetarian/vegan cooking very much with a focus on whole and organic foods. Environmental awareness and protective practices are close to my heart and I try to be mindful with my ecological footprint. I am keenly interested in foraging, wild edibles, herbalism, and natural medicine, and spend a great deal of time teaching myself about these subjects.

I am looking forward to connecting with families who will find this beneficial to their lifestyle!

Jessica is amazing, my 12 year old boy was comfortable with her instantly and can’t wait for the next time we need a babysitter. I highly recommend her, she’s someone who you instantly feel at ease ... moreJessica is amazing, my 12 year old boy was comfortable with her instantly and can’t wait for the next time we need a babysitter. I highly recommend her, she’s someone who you instantly feel at ease with and know your child is in great hands. I was able to be away all day and not have a worry in the world. Thanks so much Jessica, you are awesome :)
