Meet Jessica: Family Support Worker

Jessica joined our team in September and we are SO HAPPY! We asked her: "Tell us 3 things about you, the 1st three things that come to mind". Here's what she said:

1. I have an 18 month old daughter... she is great!

2. I also live with my partner and one of our best friends.

3. I love food, especially weird health foods.


How did you first become involved with YPSN?

After spending many hours looking at the YPSN website, I knew this was the place I wanted to work. Finally, the perfect job was posted and I applied and got it! I'm really thrilled to be here.


What is your role now?

I spend half of my time connecting with parents out in the community as a Perinatal and Family Support Worker. The rest of my time is spent hanging out with kids during the children's programs as a Child Development Worker. This includes working in the Drop-In Group on Mondays and Work Out group on Tuesdays.


What is your favorite thing about YPSN?

Everyone says it and it's true: the people! Participants, volunteers and staff are so welcoming and encouraging. People seem to feel comfortable being here, and this has made it easy for me to feel comfortable as new staff at YPSN.
