Ms. Jillian

Birthday: October 2nd

Hometown: Monroe Township, NJ

Favorite Crayola color: Raspberry

Background: In addition to babysitting since I was 12, I’ve gained experience working with children by serving as a classroom assistant at a local Tallahassee elementary school the past two semesters and volunteering for child-oriented outreach projects in Peru and Uganda.  Children bring so much joy to my life and I’m thrilled to work with families in Tallahassee. 

*I'm close to completing my Interdepartmental Developmental Disabilities certificate from FSU. I have worked at a special needs orphanage in Uganda, and I have worked in a one-on-one environment with a child with Down Syndrome. I have experience with a wide variety of special needs.

Future plans: Get my Masters degree and learn to scuba dive!

When she's not babysitting: I'm in the library, trying out new recipes, or doing something outdoors.

Defining quotation: "A mind stretched by new experiences can never go back to its old dimensions."
