Jessie graduated from UW-Milwaukee with a degree in Educational Studies: Early Care and Education. After graduation, she became a lead teacher for a childcare center in Milwaukee and later moved to the Madison area where she worked with Early Head Start. There she held the role of Lead Teacher and transitioned to the role of Center Based Family Support Specialist. This allowed her to gain experience in working with families to meet their many different needs through community supports. During that time, Jessie also obtained her Portage Project Family Service Credential. Additionally, she has worked as a Care Coordinator with a Wisconsin based Medicare Advantage plan. Jessie is excited to be a part of the CI Pediatric Therapy team working with children and families again!
