Jessica Andrews, M.A., is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst with more than 9 years of experience providing Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) services to children and adolescents with autism and other intellectual disabilities.
Jessica founded Take a Break Babysitting with hopes of providing families with top of the line experienced and knowledgeable sitters & nannies who are capable and well equipped to work with ALL children, especially those with special needs.
Growing up, Jessica and her brother Juan were raised by their single mother in Tampa, FL. Being that her brother had a developmental disability and required much more assistance and attention, she got to see firsthand how much parents of children with special needs could use a break sometimes. Juan was provided with Respite care, but these providers often lacked the training and knowledge to adequately care for him.
