MEET THE CONNECTING FOOTPRINTS TEAM
Blogger, Coordinator, Educational Consultant
Jessica brings her experiences in early childhood, education, and social programs to the Connecting Footprints team.
Noticing Weld County lacked resources for all types of parents and wanting to find a group that created a supportive, family atmosphere she started Connecting Footprints as a means to address the gaps in services for families. She understands the importance of developing connections and sees playgroup as important part of the week.
Jessica now serves as the Coordinator for this program and provides online support, collaborates with the team, our partners, and families to help keep the mission of this group flourishing. It’s important to her to make sure children AND their caregivers feel important and special.
